CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, EAST BAY Department of Biological Sciences Dr. Ken Curr Office: North Science 418 Office hours: T/Th 3:30-5pm Email: Phone: 510-885-2629 Dr. Fred Bauzon Office: North Science 425 Office hours: M/W 2:30-4pm, F 1-2 Email: Phone: 510-885-XXXX LEC TTh PE-124 6:00P-7:50pm Curr, Ken and Bauzon, Fred REQUIRED MATERIALS: Kuby Immunology by Owen, Punt, Stranford 7th ed. Scantron sheets (small, green 100-question), #2 pencil for multiple-choice answers. Questions and participation in discussions are encouraged. COURSE DESCRIPTION: BIOL 4430 is an examination of many immunological topics such as innate and adaptive immunity, B and T cell development, Antibody structure and function, & Major Histocompatibility Complex and Antigen presentation. We also cover major topics such as cytokines, autoimmunity, immune responses to disease and vaccines, hyper-sensitivity, immunodeficiencies, cancer and immune system, and transplantation. EXAM FORMAT: Lecture-Two multiple choice, short answer, true false questions exams from the lecture material will be given during the regular quarter. Each exam is worth 100 points and will require a ScantronTM answer sheet and #2 pencil. There will also be 2 quizzes worth 30 points. There will be two assignments worth 20 points each, one from Dr. Curr and one from Dr. Bauzon. The type of assignment is up to the instructor. Dr. Bauzon will require CSUEB identification to obtain exams on exam dates. Roster numbers will be assigned. Have a Scantron with you at all times. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES After completion of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Compare and contrast Innate and Adaptive Immunity 2. Understand B and T cell development (antibody structure and function). 3. Understand Major histocompatibility complex and antigen presentation 4. Understand how cytokines lead to cell signaling and immune function. 5. Appreciate how to manipulate self-antigens in autoimmunity and transplantation. 6. Understand the basics of cancer, microbes, and viruses and the immune system. 7. Understand laboratory techniques and procedures designed to foster immunology discoveries. 8. You should be able to think independently using immunological concepts that you

have learned from class. PREREQUISITES: Prerequisites as prescribed by CSU EB University Catalog: Biol 1401, 1402, and 1403 or the equivalent, Chem 2301,-2, 3301,-2,-3 You will need a college-level chemistry and biology courses to benefit from this class. This course is for Biology B.S. degree credit & meant for biology majors. LECTURE: There will be no make-up exams for any reason. If you miss the midterm exam for a valid reason (this would include sickness with a doctors note or an extreme circumstance) the score earned on the subsequent exam will be counted doubly in the final grade tabulation. Everyone MUST take the final. You know the date of the final exam so please make sure you dont make travel plans on the final date. A make-up final will be provided only for extreme circumstances. ACADEMIC DISHONESTY POLICY: By enrolling in this class the student agrees to uphold the standards of academic integrity described in the catalog at Academic Dishonesty will not be tolerated. Any one caught cheating will get an F in the class with the possibility of being withdrawn from the program.

This is a tentative schedule and is subject to change at any time!!! Note regarding the readings: While the assigned chapters and pages cover most of the material for class, you are encouraged to look up topics and subjects in the text index for useful, companion information. Final Exam: Monday June 10, 2013, 12:00-1:50 am, South Science 205. HOW TO DO WELL IN BIOLOGY 4430 Lecture and Lab: If you study, attend lectures/labs and understand the material you will do well. BIOLOGY 4430 is NOT graded on a curve. Attend class, take notes, go over the notes, read the book, ask questions in class, after class, and in office hours. Use your notes, form study groups to help learn the material. Devise questions based on the lecture and reading to study for exams questions. Typically, 2hr to 4 hours of independent study will be needed per lecture period to master the material.
