Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Understand the basic mechanism of regulation of the immune response

2. Understand the immune system in different tissues

3. Describe fundamental mechanisms of tissue versus systemic immune responses

4. Reflect on the meaning of immune priveleged tissues

5. Describe differencies in the immune response to autoantigens and pathogens

The aim of the course is to convey current newest knowledge of the immune system in different tissues, the mechanisms mediating immune privelegded tissues, and how the immune response changes depending on the locations of the response -tissue vs. systemic response by leading international scientists. In addition, the immune to autoantigens vs. pathogens will be discussed.
