In this flash course, you will learn how the superhero avengers of the body assemble to fight of invaders like virus and bacteria.

Topics include:

  • The Innate immune system
  • The adaptive immune system
  • The complement system
  • How leukocytes communicate
  • Antigens and immoglobulins

You can also try out for The Immune Academy (TIA)! It is a series of quizzes that will result in a pretend grade, ranking you from the best "Natural Killer" to a IgD nobody. Or was it antibody? Who cares, it's gonna be fun.


This course has no requirements. Have at it.
