      Course Description
    This course is designed as a graduate level (Master, PhD) course on concepts in immunology that are applicable to oral biology. It emphasizes oral aspects of humoral and cell mediated immunity, covering topics such as oral vaccines, mucosal immunity, genetic basis of normal function as well as aberrations in immunological mediators, and host responses in oral diseases. The students are expected to have a basic knowledge of immunology although a review session on basic immunological concepts is provided at the beginning of the course. Emphasis is placed on the aspects of immunology that are directly pertinent to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis of inflammatory condition and diseases associated with the oral cavity and with oral biology. Although lectures based, the course relies heavily on research-based current literature and the students are expected to derive information from that literature and present a review of some of those papers in the last portion of the course. Discussion or medical and research topics is part of the course and the students are also evaluated on that basis.
