Immunological Aspects and Techniques Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research

Provide participants with an overview on the theory of Ecological Risk Assessment for the Effects of Fishing (ERAEF), a new technique that assesses the risk to marine fish stocks and ecosystems of commercial and recreational fishing. The ERAEF technique allows the prioritization of risks so that management responses can be proportional to the risks identified. Provide participants with practical experience in undertaking an ERAEF using the data from Kuwait. This practical experience will be provided through a structured and guided risk assessment based on the theory covered in the initial stages of the course

Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain comprehensive knowledge about the immune system, the function of different components of the immune system, the effects of different cytokine in T helper cell subsets polarization and, consequently, autoimmunity
  • Become familiar with some important immunological techniques
  • Have enough knowledge to measure different immunological parameters

Participants

People with an interest and understanding in zoology or immunological sciences

Pre-requisites
