    Description The course Cellular Immunology is a balanced combination between theory and laboratory-based practical activities. The students will elaborate themselves the basic principles of immune cell types, cell characterization, cell activation and function. In parallel, laboratory protocols corresponding to the theoretical principals will be applied under the instruction and supervision of experienced researchers. There will be emphasis on experimental design, leading to performing corresponding experiments by the students. The students will collect individual results for each experiment, to be used for statistical analysis and discussion.
    Training objectives 1. Elaborating the theories of the principals of
    a. Immune stem cells, cell types and cell differentiation
    b. Cell proliferation, cell cycle, cell aging and cell death
    c. Dedifferentiation and immortalization of cells
    d. Cell characterization
    e. Immune cell activation
    2. Acquiring the practical laboratory skills of
    a. Isolation of cells
    b. Cell culture
    c. Measuring cell viability, cell proliferation and cell aging
    d. Characterizing cells according to surface and intracellular markers
    e. Measuring immune cell activation
    f. Measuring expression and secretion of soluble mediators (e.g. cytokines)
    3. Improving skills of oral and written communication
    a. Literature research and short presentation of given topic
    b. Laboratory report
