Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge of human disease and to provide an overview of modern cellular and molecular immunology seeking to understand the mechanisms that regulate the normal, but also the "abnormal", functioning of immune system. It will be taken into account also the techniques used for the study and diagnosis of disease patterns examined.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding - Acquisition of the tools to understand the mechanisms of disease. Ability to use the language of their specific discipline.

Applying knowledge and understanding - Ability to recognize and apply the cognitive tools and the rigorous approach of the Pathology as rational of any activity related directly and indirectly to health protection.

Indipendence of judgment - Being able to learn and independently evaluate the results of investigations on the pathogenesis and diagnosis of diseases

Communicative skills ?- Ability to explain, in a simple, immediate and exhaustive manner the acquired knowledge and to know how to interface with future professional roles (researchers, students, health-operative).

Learning ability - Upgrade capabilities through consultation of the scientific literatue of the discipline. Ability to participate, using the knowledge gained in the course, the continuous updating initiatives in the professional field.
