Educational Program in Immunobiology of Transplantation
text is offered to people who understand the basic principles of immunobiology and
genetics. These would include as physicians and surgeons interested in transplant
immunobiology as well as medical students, graduate and upper-level undergraduate

At the advanced
level, the educational topics will be covered with considerable detail. This
service will be to medical professionals who practice in the field of transplantation,
including transplant surgeons and physicians as well as transplantation immunologists and
histocompatibility experts. Reviews will be offered on recent developments in transplant
immunobiology and there will also be hot debates about controversial issues. A special
feature will be the incorporation of case materials covered by Transplant Pathology
Internet of Services.
The educational materials contain
highlighted key words which are linked to other sites on the Internet. Through these links
the reader can obtain additional information about various topics. Of special interest is
the connection to MEDLINE whereby the reader can choose key works and scientist
names to search the recent medical literature about special topics of interest.
A special feature of this program
is the "Ask The Professor" column. You will have
the opportunity to direct your questions about specific topics related to the
