World-Renowned Scientists to lead Immunology Course

Basic Immunology in Medicine: Update 2008 -- This one-day course was created in 2003 by Dr. Abul Abbas of the

University of California-San Francisco and Dr. Hidde Ploegh of the Whitehead Institute and MIT.

Abbas is known in the field of immunology for directing courses and authoring text books related to basic immunology. At present, Abbas has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers and invited reviews on a number of subjects, including B-cell and T-cell development and regulation, cytokine-mediated regulation of immune cell function, and immune cell apoptosis.

Ploegh was recently honored by the Belgian InBev-Baillet Latour Fund with the Interbrew-Baillet Latour Health Prize. One of the world's leading researchers in immune system behavior, Ploegh studies the various tactics that viruses employ to evade our immune responses, and the ways in which our immune system distinguishes friend from foe. His findings have implications for both vaccine and drug development.

The purpose of this course is to review selected topics in basic immunology. The topics have been chosen based on two main criteria -- issues that are relevant to clinical problems and the development of novel therapeutic strategies, and areas in which there have been substantial progress in the recent past.
