The course focuses on the biochemistry and cell biology of antigen presentation, that is, the defence mechanism of the mammalian immune system against infection with viruses and intracellular bacteria, which also plays a role in cancer and transplantation. Antigen presentation will be explored from the point of view of the proteins involved: their structure, function, and intracellular fate.
