The goal of this class is to provide students with the means to understand the relevance of immunology and immunotherapy strategies in the treatment of human disease. We havegathered an exceptional number of immunotherapy experts throughout the world to teach basic immunology principles and discuss the development and success of different immunotherapies in the treatmentof inflammatory diseases, autoimmunity, cancer, and infectious diseases. The course will be organized in 2 modules (17.5 hours per module) with lectures provided by faculty from three universities: University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris), University of Sao Paulo (Brazil) and faculty from Sinai (New York) through videoconferences.
