    3rd HKU-Pasteur Immunology Course

    Course Date: 01 Nov 2010

    for Research Postgraduate Students (MPhil and PhD)

    Programme
    Topic: Basic aspects of both innate and adaptive immunity, with particular attention to molecular mechanisms involved in pathogen sensing
    Date: 1-12 November 2010

    The 3rd HKU–Pasteur Immunology Course will focus on basic aspects of both innate and adaptive immunity, with particular attention to molecular mechanisms involved in pathogen sensing.  The course will begin with a general overview of fundamental immunology and will continue with a series of topical lectures by a group of leading scientists in the field covering the repertoire of effector cells, pathogen associated molecular patterns and recognition molecules or receptors, such as pattern recognition receptors, Toll like receptor activation and signaling pathways, microRNA and cytokine induction, as well as of transcriptional regulation of inflammatory cells.  In addition, hand-on practical sessions will be incorporated into the course to complement lectures and illustrate some most current techniques in immunological research.  The Journal Clubs will train participants to critically analyze scientific papers working in small group and to improve their oral presentation skills.
