Explanatory Session for the Combined Program on Microbiology and Immunology

2011-4-12 (Tue) 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon

The Research Institute for Microbial Diseases will hold an explanatory session for Advanced Minor Programs -- The Combined Program on Microbiology and Immunology of the Research Institute for Microbial Diseases on Tuesday, April 12.

Understanding host immunological response is essential for developing treatment of infectious diseases such as new types of influenza, AIDS, and malaria.

The impact of indigenous microorganisms on the immune system was found to contribute significantly to the development of auto immune diseases recently. In order to develop treatment for immune system diseases, mutual interaction between the microorganism and the host must be understood.

For the above reasons, nurturing researchers who are familiar with infectious diseases and immunology, both of which have developed separately, becomes an important issue.

Osaka University's advanced minor programs provide education making the best use of its advantageous environment in which top level researchers in infectious diseases and immunology gather in research institutes such as Research Institute for Microbial Diseases, Immunology Frontier Research Center, and Graduate School of Medicine.

Front-line lectures in infectious diseases and immunology develop programs consisting of a lecture on the basic ideas and discussion about important document in related fields, thereby, nurturing researchers who will play a practical leading roles in these fields.
