AFNS 511 - Veterinary Immunology

★ 3 (fi 6) (second term, 3-0-0) Application of immunological principles to the understanding of animal health and disease with a focus on livestock and companion animals. Students will apply a broad understanding of host-pathogen interactions and the basic mechanisms of disease progression to assess the short and long-term impact of pathogenesis to the health of animals, their caretakers, and consumers. Lectures will be followed by active discussion of selected readings. Lectures are the same as for AN SC 411, but with additional assignments and evaluation appropriate to graduate studies. Credit will only be given for one of AFNS 511 and AN SC 411. Prerequisite: (IMIN 200 or equivalent) and consent of instructor.
