Bite-Sized Immunology

Visit the website

Bite-Sized Immunology is a developing online resource designed to form a comprehensive guide to the immune system, yet approaching the topic via punchy, easy-to-digest, entries that outline major learning points. You can search by keyword, and access/download the content in a variety of formats – as well as via graphical interface, or flexible menu system.

The content is especially suitable for biomedical undergraduates, but should appeal to advanced school students and others coming to the field of immunology for the first time.

How can I learn the basics…?

Some tips for beginners:

  • We have created a short and snappy guide to the basics of immunity, Immunology Explained, including some fascinating facts. You can access it here.
  • For a longer introduction, you may consult our illustrated beginners guide to the immune system, Nature’s ‘Self’ Defence. It is also available as a downloadable PDF. Click here to access the guide.
  • We have also provided a more detailed overview, as part of the Bite-Sized content here
