Description

Cancer immunology is a branch of biology that focus on understanding the role of the immune system in the progression and development of cancer. The most well-known application is cancer immunotherapy, which engineers the immune system to fight cancer. The overall goal of this course is to introduce some basic principles of immunology, provide a comprehensive overview of the interaction between immune system and cancer, and how immunotherapy has been developed based on our knowledge of cancer immunology. The course will also discuss basic and clinical issues related to cancer immunology and immunotherapy. Students will participate in a discussion and presentation on any interesting topic related to cancer immunology. This course will provide a solid foundation of cancer immunology.
