We are soliciting applications for the 5th HKU-PASTEUR IMMUNOLOGY COURSE (November 18-30, 2012). The major theme of course will be adaptive immune responses, which are highly specific and make use of very efficient mechanisms of somatic diversification to generate virtually unlimited repertoires of structurally diverse antigen receptors that are clonally expressed by lymphocytes. The course will provide an overview of the two lymphoid lineages and will address the key features of the design principles of adaptive immune systems in vertebrates. The final lectures will consider AIDS as an example of diseases that are caused by failure of the immune response.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 27 August 2012
