Objectives and Goals

Immunology is an application area in the Scholarly Concentration program that introduces students to immunology research and scholarship.  Working with internationally recognized experts, students can become involved in projects in any of the major areas of immunology, from basic cellular and molecular immunology, to translational areas, including:  allergy, autoimmunity, microbial immunity, tumor immunology, transplantation immunology, and vaccine development.  .


Students who pursue Immunology are required to complete a total of 6 units which may be fulfilled by attending two courses: Translational Immunology (IMM 209, 1 unit per quarter) and/or the Immunology Research Seminar for Medical Students (IMM 210 - 2 units per quarter). These units may be distributed throughout the Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer quarters.
