Immunology

By; Ty Schneider

Session 1

In Session 1 of Immunology I completed a personal immune system health assessment. Also, I identified types of blood cells that are part of the immune system as well as exploring an app to identify terminology related to the immune system. Lastly I identified structures that are a part of the immune system.

Session 2

In session 2 of Immunology explored and modeled community immunity. I also distinguished antibodies from antigens. Lastly I explained how the body's immune system defense works.

Session 3

In session 3 of Immunology I identified the parts of a compound light microscope. I learned how the advancement of microscopes has helped the field medicine. I learned how to take care of and handle the microscope, Lastly, I learned how to take a micrograph using the microscope.

Session 4

In session 4 of immunology I classified bacteria from micrographs aswell as taking micrographs of the different types of bacteria. I also identified bacteria based on the shape, grouping and staining.

Session 5

In session 5 I labeled the different structures in a micrograph of the influenza virus. I also compared the size of human cells with bacterial cells, and viruses. Lastly, I researched the prevention and treatment of a viral disease.

Session 6

In session 6 I explored how protists and fungi can become pathogenic. Also, I identified methods of treatment and prevention of protists and fungal diseases. Lastly, I identified them in a micrograph.

Session 7

In session 7 I identified the benefits and the risks of exposure to sunlight. I also compared autoimmune disorders to autoimmunodeficiency disorders. Lastly, I developed a personal immune health plan to boost my immune system.

Biomedical Scientist

A biomedical scientist is a scientist trained in biology, particularly in the context of medicine. They seek to gain knowledge on the main principles of how the human body work. They find new ways and strategies on curing diseases and treating illnesses. Typically to become a biomedical scientist you must have a doctorate degree. This job relates to the current module because they preform experiments and learn about cells and ways to treat them.
