Specific entry requirements Basic knowledge in immunology corresponding to course 2302 is required.
Learning outcomes After the course, the student should be able to relate their own research project to the cutting-edge developments in other areas of immunology research. Furthermore, they should have gained increased experience in preparing and presenting novel information about an immunological problem or a specific technique to their fellow students.
Contents of the course The course is given during 2 weeks. Invited national and international lecturers give their views on selected problems, or techniques, in immunology. The seminars take off from basic facts, but the speakers are encouraged to move on to current problems, and to focus on both scientific and methodological aspects. To merit 3 full ECTS points for the course, students will be asked, in a group project work, to study an immunological method or problem deeply at the theoretical level and lecture about this method to the fellow students. At the end of the course, a written and an oral presentation is expected from all students.
Teaching and learning activities Lectures, group work, oral and written presentations
Compulsory elements Oral presentations at the end of the course. Written project work and written test. If a student misses the presentation, a special presentation with the course leader will be arranged.
Examination Evaluation of oral and written presentation of project work. Specific contibution of each group participant will be investigated and evaluated. A short written exam based on the content of the course.
Literature and other teaching material Standard text books in immunology, such as Janeway and Travers, Immunobiology, is recommended but not required. The topic of this course is broad. Furthermore, the course content is dynamic and dependent on which lecturers that are available each year and which areas in immunology that are particularly interesting at the time, it is not possible to give a specific list of scientifi papers which the students should read. Lecturers are instead asked to hand out review articles pertinent to their subject. During the group work, specific articles on the immunological problems or techniques are recommended.
Number of students 8 - 20
Selection of students Selection will be based on 1) the relevance of the course syllabus for the applicant's doctoral project (according to written motivation), 2) date for registration as a doctoral student (priority given to earlier registration date).
More information Course will be held Monday-Friday at MTC on the Solna campus. Lectures will begin at 9 am and end on most days 2 pm. Lecturers will be invited from research institutes around Europe.
