The lecture will focus on the experimental aspect of the discipline, by detailing which experiences did certain important notions were acquired.
1. History and basic knowledge. 2. Antibodies and lymphocytes. 3. Lymphocytes. 4. Development and organisation of the immune system: natural and adaptive immunity. 5. Immune tolerance and autoimmunity. 6. Synthesis: the immune’s response against infectious antigens. 7. Immunopathology elements: hypersensitivity, anti-infection defences, tumour immunology. 8. Vaccines, transplants, mucosal immunity.
The course includes two sections, the first section is a 35-hour module which deals with all subject matters (including Histology notions) and consists of the central core for 3rd year Bachelor students in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. Included in these 35 hours, is a 5-hour specialisation specifically targeted for students in Dentistry, and during this time, the other students (Medicine, Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences) will review other immunology notions (tolerance, autoimmunity, cancer, transplants, …).
The second section is a 30-hour module which is given simultaneously to the Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences, and which allows to dig deeper into the subject matter, by insisting on practical and experimental applications.
The course slides are in English and the final written exam will always consist of one question, written in the English language, but the answer can be provided in French.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Lectures:
- With examples and illustrations, presentation of English language slides, some elements will be presented on a blackboard.
- Co-presenter: each teacher will give part of a course
- Upload of documents and slides on Moodle
- Upload of exercises and answer sheets on Moodle
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.
- Short exercises given during the course.
- Exercises corrected via Moodle.
- The last course is a ‘revision’ class related to an upcoming exam, where the subject matter will be discussed collectively and corrected/clarified by the professors.
The pass threshold is set at 10. Non-whole marks are rounded to the whole number.
- Syllabus illustré et complet (français), comprenant plus que la matière sujette à examen, pour les étudiants intéressés (ces parties supplémentaires sont écrites en un caractère plus petit et donc facilement identifiables).
- Documents projetés au cours (anglais) disponibles sur Moodle.
- Cours podcasté.
- Exercices corrigés disponibles sur Moodle, similaires aux questions d'examen.
- Livres de référence (anglais) mentionnés au début du cours, mais ils ne sont pas nécessaires pour l'examen.
