Molecular Immunology

Course ID: 
MIR 511
Description: 

All Molecular Immunology classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday of each week in the MRC Conference Room, located in MRC, 2nd floor, room 240., unless otherwise notified.  The new schedule is below.

It is assumed that the student has had both genetics and biochemistry.  If the student has not had these courses they may have problems with the early material.  If there is a concern, please talk with the course instructor, Dr. Gollnick.

There will be two exams and a comprehensive final.  The exams will consist of essays and problems.  Alphanumeric calculators will not be allowed.  Each exam will be worth 30% of your grade, the final will be worth 40%.

The dates of the EXAMS are fixed, however the topics covered on each individual exam is tentative.

Other than confirmed illness or a confirmed death in the family, there are NO MAKE-UP EXAMS.  If a student is seriously ill and can produce a local doctor's excuse, please call Dr. Gollnick and work out some way to make up the exam.

If you ask Dr. Gollnick to regrade an exam, she will regrade the entire exam, not just one question.

There is one required text for this course:

Immunology, 7th Edition
Owens et al.
W.H. Freeman & Co.
