О курсе

Course 3 of a three course specialization called Fundamentals of Immunology. Each course in the specialization presents material that builds on the previous course's material. This is the third leg of the journey through the defenses your body uses to keep you healthy. In the first course we learned about innate immunity and B cell function. In the second course we studied T cell function and coordination of the immune response. Fundamentals of Immunology: Death by Friendly Fire introduces students to the basic functions of the adaptive and innate immune systems. The early lectures survey cells, tissues and organs using metaphors, cartoons and models to improve understanding and retention. After describing the form, function, origin and varieties of antibodies, subsequent lectures provide details on the mechanism of the generation of variation. The course provides animations of gene rearrangement and class switching and descriptions of affinity maturation correlated with detailed physical models of antibody structure. The final lecture reviews these concepts in anatomical context. Testing employs multiple choice questions testing facts, concepts, and application of principles. Questions may refer to diagrams, drawing and photographs used in lecture and reproduced in the outline. What You’ll Learn: A survey of immune cells and how they attack pathogens, with emphasis on the mechanism of inducing apoptosis and details of Antibody Directed Cell-mediated Cytotoxicity. The inflammatory response and mechanisms of generating tolerance, presented in sequence to emphasize the decision making involved in controlling attacks. A survey of autoimmune disease, their characteristics, cause and treatment. Survey of hypersensitivity reactions, including allergy, anaphylaxis, anemias, granulomas, and a variety of skin responses. This is accompanied by identification, prevention and treatment. The final discussion of preventing transplant rejection is preceded by a detailed unit on antibody technology and the methods of testing for incompatibility....

Highly recommended to Biology and Life Science students.

I liked the enthusiastic way of teaching from Dr. Alma

If you have a small interest, go ahead.

Another interesting and well taught course. I would have preferred more of an emphasis on disease and treatment of autoimmune diseases and hypersensitivity, at this point. I think most people know someone who suffers from these disorders. This material was much more easy to relate in the course than, for example, details of the different types of Elisa assays.

Some fundamentals need attention: (1) diagrams in guide and some slides have text too small to read (2) mixed use of A B and α β - with unicode no need for this (3) mismatched numbering in places, some people have pointed out in forums not fixed after several *years*

I've been enjoying this specialization but I was disappointed in a number of problems with this one. Questions on quizzes were prior to the actual lesson those questions came from. Some of the quizzes had questions that were not topics from lectures and these questions were straight recall and not critical thinking. On the final, the same question appeared twice!

Are the videos transcribed using some thyp of AI? I kept having to stop the video to correct the transcript and this slowed me down. In addition, the overall course outline was lacking figures shown in the video even though figures were supposed to be in the outline. I had to copy a lot of these missing figures to put them together with the transcript for better understanding.
