About this Simulation

This short, targeted simulation is adapted from the full-length Introduction to Immunology simulation. 

Have you ever wondered how your organism manages to fight millions of pathogens that are trying to infect you daily? Which organs and cells are involved in that never ending battle? During this simulation, you’ll discover this complicated network of organs and cells that create an immunological system and protect you every day. Are you ready to meet your superheroes?

Explore the major organs of the immune system

Various organs in your body are responsible for production, maturation, and control of immune cells. Even though they are not present at the site of infection, without them the immune cells wouldn’t work properly and efficiently. Sometimes non obvious organs, like the heart, can be vital for proper function of the system. Will you be able to identify all those organs and guess their function in the immunological reaction?

Classify immune cell types and their role in the system

The immune system is a complex army of cells and tissues that work together to protect your body from infection. In the next mission you’ll meet all major cells that are fighting with pathogens and protect you every day. You’ll also meet the key cells involved in immune memory and learn how the adaptive immune system helps us fight recurring infections.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:

  • Identify the major organs of the immune system

  • Classify immune cell types by their role in responses

  • Explain the importance of lymphocyte clonal selection & deletion processes

Techniques in Lab
