Fundamentals of Immunology

T Cells and Signaling

This course is a part of Fundamentals of Immunology, a 3-course Specialization series from Coursera.

Course 2 of a three course specialization called Fundamentals of Immunology. Each course in the specialization presents material that builds on the previous course's material. This is the second half of the journey through the defenses your body uses to keep you healthy. In the first part we learned about innate immunity and B cell function. The second part covers T cell function and coordination of the immune response. Fundamentals of Immunology: T cells and Signaling builds on the first course to describe the functions of Complement, MHC presentation to T cells, T cell development and signaling. The early lectures survey cells, tissues and organs using metaphors, cartoons and models to improve understanding and retention. This course includes the structure of both MHC proteins and T cell receptors and the sources of variation. The course provides animations of gene rearrangement, developmental processes and signal cascades. Testing employs multiple choice questions testing facts, concepts, and application of principles. Questions may refer to diagrams, drawing and photographs used in lecture and reproduced in the outline. What You’ll Learn: How complement uses adaptive and innate triggers to target pathogens. The detailed structure and coding of MHC proteins and both alpha-beta and gamma delta receptors and how these proteins interact to initiate an adaptive immune response. The basics of signaling, and the varieties of external receipt and internal activation pathways. We bine the process of putting together how signals and crosstalk control the activity of the immune system.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

about t cells in one review

I would recommend you to take this course if you want to understand more about T cells and overall immunology terminology.

or conformation changes in one review

I would suggest improving a little bit the video and sound, and adding some animations, for example for signaling or conformation changes.

overall immunology terminology in one review

immunology can in one review

Immunology can be confusing but she somewhat make it easy to remember.
