The laboratory experiments will focuson immunological methods employing antibodies, such as agglutination, immunodiffusion, immunocytochemistry, Western blotting and ELISA. Through designing and carrying out a research project to test a relationship between stress and the immune system, students will be introduced to the process of scientific research, will develop an understanding of how to collect and analyze the significance of data, and will gain the skills for reading, presenting and writing a scientific paper.
