Immunology is a complicated




Term: Helper T-cells;Immunology is a complicated (but fascinating) topic. An understanding of the immune;response to viruses is critical to understanding the course of a viral infection as well as;its pathogenesis. We are constantly exposed to viruses through respiration as well as;through direct contact. It is our immune systems that generally ensure these viruses do;not affect us. For most pathogenic viruses, it is not the virus itself that causes tissue;damage and cell death, but it is the immune response that is responsible for the majority;of tissue damage.;I believe the best way to understand the immune response to a virus is to first;understand all the players of the immune response and then put together how these;players work as a coordinated team to mount an effective immune response. The;players in the immune response are the cells, the macromolecules and receptors that;constitute the immune system. For LU9, each student should claim one of the players;below and create a single PowerPoint to teach the class the role of this player in the;immune response. The slide should have 3 or 5figures max and a series of bullet points;that explain the player. The slides will then constitute a study guide that should help you;with the immune response learning units. Next week you will put all these players;together and create concept maps that explain the intrinsic, innate and adaptive;immune response to you semester virus and then explain the maps to the class using;Jing
