GIAN Short Term Course on Basic immunology and Immunotherapy 
(Course Code:176039H01)

 September 22-26, 2019 


The science of immunology is the study of the immune system in both healthy and diseased states. Study of immunology is critical to human health and survival. Basic immunology provides insight into the developments and function of network of immune cells, tissues and organs and malfunctions of the immune system. This knowledge is of fundamental importance to understanding the various mechanisms underlying human diseases and to develop medical interventions to prevent and treat them. Study of immunology has led to some major health care advances including vaccination and cancer immunotherapy. 

Immunotherapy, or the use of a person’s own immune system to treat an infection or disease, has recently been at the forefront of cancer research. The increasing use of monoclonal antibodies and the recent success of immune check point inhibitors such PDL-1 based immunotherapy highlight the success of this approach in the treatment of cancers. Immunotherapy is also emerging as a novel treatment for various autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis, as well as conditions such as allergy and asthma. An understanding of the immune system in health and disease has the potential to develop further ways of manipulating it to maintain health. Furthermore, the discipline of immunology is increasing in complexity and utilizing skills from other sectors such as engineering, computing and bioinformatics. Future development of immunoassays and immunotherapies are going to require increased collaboration between these sciences. Therefore, it is essential to raise the awareness of basic immunology and immunotherapy amongst students in Indian Universities not only in life sciences, but also in other disciplines such as engineering and computer science etc.
