Lab Course Immunology

Blockpraktikum Immunologie

Date: 02. - 20.03.2020

Time: 09.00 am - 05.00 pm 

Location: Biozentrum, Großhaderner Str. 2, Planegg-Martinsried, D00.017 und D00.021

Lecturers: Dr. Dirk Baumjohann, Prof. Dr. Thomas Brocker, Dr. Katharina Eisenächer, Prof. Dr. Vigo Heissmeyer, Prof. Dr. Ludger Klein, Dr. Jan Kranich, Prof. Dr. Anne Krug, PD Dr. Reinhard Obst, Dr. Lisa Richter

For students of the masters program Biology and Biochemistry and students of Medicine. This lab course offers an introduction to practical skills, techniques and methods of current immunology. We will look at the anatomy of the immune system, isolation, manipulation and stimulation of immune cells. We will analyze lymphoid organs, antibody responses, phenotype immune cells, stimulate dendritic cells, activate and differentiate T cells in vitro and purify and label antibodies for flow cytometric analysis. The students will get insights into immune cell homing, differentiation of lymphocytes by surface markers, dendritic and T cell activation, signaling, proliferation, differentiation and MHC restriction. Techniques employed will include histology, fluorescence microcopy, flow cytometry (including data analysis using the FlowJo software), ELISA, Western blot and gel chromatography.

Interested students send an email to Marion Dorfmeister (sekretariat.immunologie@med.uni-muenchen.de) until November 30th 2019.

For participation, passing the Immunology I or II exam is mandatory!

Seminar: T cell differentiation and function

Blockseminar

Using classical and current publications, basic principles and emerging concepts of T helper cell differentiation, function, and plasticity are being discussed. The class requires reading of several papers and the preparation of a presentation. A basic understanding of Immunology is necessary and taking the lecture Immunology I & II is recommended.

Minimal participation: 5

Date: t.b.a. - early spring

Location: BMC, Großhaderner Str. 9, Martinsried, Room NB 00.005

Lecturer: Dr. Dirk Baumjohann dirk.baumjohann@med.uni-muenchen.de

Veranstaltungsnummer: 7C0711

Seminar: The Experimental Basis of Immunology

For students of Biology, Biochemistry and Medicine (Wahlfach 1. Studienabschnitt)

This seminar deals with the biological basis of immunity and how we know about it from experiments. By looking at classical and current publications the central concepts of Immunology will be introduced. The class requires reading of several papers per week and the preparation of written summaries and flow charts. A basic understanding of Immunology is necessary and taking the lecture Immunology I & II is recommended.

Time: Mondays, 04.00 - 05.30 pm

Start Date: 14.10.2019

Location: BMC, Großhadernerstr. 9, Martinsried, Room NB 00.005

Lecturer: PD Dr. Reinhard Obst reinhard.obst@med.uni-muenchen.de

Veranstaltungsnummer: 7C0713 & 7M0012

Seminar: T cell signal transduction

For students of Biology, Biochemistry and Medicine (Wahlfach 1. Studienabschnitt)

This seminar addresses current aspects of signal transduction to understand T lymphocyte activation through the T cell receptor and its importance for T cell development/differentiation and effector function.

The class includes reading and presenting of a research manuscript, interpreting primary data and comparing different experimental systems as well as discussing concepts of immunology.

A basic understanding of Immunology is necessary and taking the lecture Immunology I & II is recommended.


Date: during 17.2.-21.2.2020

Times: the exact hours and duration of each meeting will be aligned to the number of students

Location: BMC, Großhaderner Str. 9, Martinsried, Room NB 00.005

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Vigo Heissmeyer vigo.heissmeyer@med.uni-muenchen.de

Veranstaltungsnummer: 7C0735

Seminar: Lymphocyte Development

For students of the masters programs in Biology and Biochemistry and students of Medicine.

The aim of the seminar is to introduce students to the current concepts of T- and B-cell biology. It will focus on various aspects of lymphocyte development including topics such as hematopoietic progenitors, cell-fate decisions, transcriptional and post-transcriptional (by non-coding RNA) regulation of T- and B-cell development. Experimental approaches like transgenic mouse models, molecular barcoding, genome editing methods and in vitro differentiation systems will be discussed.

 

Time: Wednesdays, 05:00 - 06:30 pm:

Dates: 30.10., 06.11., 13.11., 20.11., 27.11., 04.12., 11.12., 18.12.19 (8 times)

Location: BMC, Room NB 00.005

Lecturer: Dr Natalia Zietara & Dr Marcin Lyszkiewicz
