Course Description & Objectives: 

Immunobiology is the study of the immune response and the biological aspects of immunity to disease. This course provides an introduction to host resistance and immunoregulation and is the basis for the Immunobiotechnology course offered during the 2nd semester of the program.  It also provides the basic knowledge required for immunology laboratory set up and immunological materials/supplies. The molecular basis of immune system will be emphasized.  Laboratory experimentation and research will provide hands-on experience of the techniques used in immunology laboratories; in so doing will supplement the lecture sessions and enhance students’ learning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Objectives:

  • To equip the student with knowledge on the principles and applications of the immune system responses, especially at molecular level.
  • To impart knowledge and hands-on experience on laboratory techniques employed in the immunology laboratory.
  • To impart skills on detection of immune response or immunological reactions and their application in medical interventions such as skin grafting and organ transplantation.
  • To enlighten the students on the mechanisms and importance of body defense mechanisms.


Learning Outcomes: 

At the end of the course, the students should be able to:

  • Appreciate the biochemical and physical properties of antibodies and cell mediated immunity.
  • Explain how the body responds to presence of foreign bodies.
  • Describe how the two arms of immunity interact with each other and how the immune responses are regulated.
  • Appreciate the mechanisms and importance of immune system
