Objectives of the course:
This course is aimed to offer the most up-dated information on the cellular and molecular players of innate immunity, and on the mechanisms that lead to the elimination of the pathogens, either of bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic origin. Because innate immunity is closely associated with inflammation, the involvement of innate immunity with diseases will also be addressed. Finally, up-to date tools to study the innate immune system will be presented.

Main topics addressed during the course:
Introduction to immunology | Cellular players | Molecular players | Interactions host – pathogens | Regulation of the innate immune response | Innate immunity, inflammation and diseases | Studying innate immune system
