Have you ever wondered how you stay alive in the face of ongoing attack from bacteria and viruses? On this course you will explore how the innate and the adaptive immune systems work to protect your body from harm. You will explore how and why vaccines are so successful at protecting against disease. You will also learn how our own immune system can contribute to disease in long-term chronic conditions like diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and arthritis.
