Lecture 1d: Lymphoid Organs and Lymphatics
Welcome to the final lecture of Week One in Applied Immunology. This session introduces lymphoid organs, pivotal for immune cell development and activation. We’ll cover the lymphatic system’s role in immune cell transport and how these organs drive immune responses. Lymphoid organs are categorized as primary (bone marrow and thymus) and secondary (lymph nodes, spleen). These organs house key immune cells and facilitate immune priming. Effective immune responses rely on their interaction. Don’t forget your assignments: textbook reading, discussion board, and the reading quiz for extra credit. See you in Week Two!
