Pathogens Avoid Host Surveillance (MIT) 7.340 Immune Evasion: How Sneaky Pathogens Avoid Host Surveillance (MIT) Every infection consists of a battle between the invading pathogen and the resisting host To be successful a pathogen must escape the many defenses of the host immune system until it can replicate and spread to another host A pathogen must prevent one of three stages of immune function detection activation or effector function Examples of disease specific immune evasion and the mechanisms used by pathogens to prevail over their hosts immune systems are discussed Also considered is what these host pathogen interactions reveal about the normal function of the immune system and basic cell biological processes such as protein maturation and degradation Every infection

Radar Screen: How Bugs Trick Our Immune Defenses (MIT) In this course we will explore the specific ways by which microbes defeat our immune system and the molecular mechanisms that are under attack phagocytosis the ubiquitin proteasome pathway MHC I II antigen presentation Through our discussion and dissection of the primary research literature we will explore aspects of host pathogen interactions We will particularly emphasize the experimental techniques used in the field and how to read and understand research data Technological advances in the fight against microbes will also be discussed with specific examples This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about In this course we will explore the specific ways by which microbes defeat our immune system and the molecular mechanisms that are under attack

Commensal Bacteria while Preventing Pathogenic Invasions (MIT) 7.347 Living Dangerously: How the Immune System Maintains Peace with Trillions of Commensal Bacteria while Preventing Pathogenic Invasions (MIT) In this course we will examine how the immune system acts to destroy pathogenic invaders while tolerating colonization by necessary commensal bacteria As a counterpoint we will also explore sophisticated strategies that help some bacteria evade our immune system This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting Many instructors of the Advanced Undergraduate Seminars are postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in teaching In this course we will examine how the immune system acts to destroy pathogenic invaders while tolerating
