Venice Italy

The Program: The Program focuses on the influence of environmental factors on the immune system and includes an introductory section covering the basics of the immune system/immune response (innate immunity, adaptive immunity, B cell responses, T cell responses, hypersensitivity reactions). It then discusses how immune responses are modulated by environmental pollutants and the causal links between exposure and immunomodulation, including the corresponding basic molecular mechanisms. In Venice, lectures given by faculty members from the Department of Environmental Sciences at Ca' FoscariUniversity, will cover several environmental issues, including global warming and specific soil and water pollutants. Field trips set up to collect samples (which will be analyzed in the lab by the students) and visit different sites to observe and discuss novel methods for cleaning up pollutants will complete the hands-on environmental aspects of the course.
