The Human Immune System: Overview of Anatomy and Function


The human immune system is perhaps the most complicated system in our bidies. It is composed of organs and chemicals that interact with one another to perform the miracle of defending us against pathogenic invaders. This program, the first of three, will explore the components of the immune system and describe how they work together to protect us.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Discuss the main organs that comprise the human immune system - the thymus, the bone marrow and the cells it produces, the lymph system and the spleen
  • Explain the role and importance of leukocytes.
  • Identify and discuss the two main functional divisions of the immune system - the innate system and the adaptive system
  • Describe the innate immune system and its main sentinels and warriors, including macrophages, neutrophils, NK cells and others
  • Describe the purposes and functions of the adaptive immune system


This program includes small workbooks that can be ordered separately.
