Summary

Immunoengineering is an emerging field where engineering principles are grounded in immunology. This course provides students a broad overview of how engineering approaches can be utilized to study immunology, modulate immune response, and develop novel immunotherapies.

Content

Part 1. Understanding immunology from the engineering point of view

Introduction of the course

Overview of the fundamentals of immunology: adaptive and innate immunity

Using engineering tools and new technologies to understand immunology

 

Part 2. Engineering novel immunotherapies for diseases

Overview of Infectious diseases and vaccines

Design of immunogenic vaccines

Cell based vaccines

Autoimmunity and tolerogenic vaccines

Cancer and cancer immunotherapies

Protein and antibody engineering

Materials engineering and immune drug delivery

Immune cell engineering and genetic engineering

Tissue engineering and Artificial lymphoid tissues

Metabolic engineering  and immune modulation

 

Part 3. Applications and practical issues

Case studies of immunotherapy development
