What you'll learn
- Principles of Transplant Immunology
- Kinds of organ or tissues to transplant
- Laboratory testing for histocompatibility
- Compatibility criteria for donor and recipient
- Types of organ or tissue transplant rejection
- Immunosuppressive agents in transplantation
- Basic background in health or medical sciences
Organ transplantation is the process of surgically transferring a donated organ to someone diagnosed with organ failure. Undergoing an organ transplant can lengthen a person’s life and allow those with chronic illness to live a normal lifespan. In this course, you will be learning about the different kinds of organ and tissue (graft) that can be donated, as well as what tests are done in the lab to ensure compatibility between donor and recipient. You will also discover the indications for each graft to transplant and what potential adverse effects to consider. So if you're curious about how organ transplantation works, especially in the context of immunology, this is the course for you.
Upon enrollment to the course all materials such as lecture videos, practice quizzes, and downloadable resources will always be available should you wish to go back to the material to study and review. You will also receive a Certificate of Completion which you can use to boost your resume, curriculum vitae, or LinkedIn profile.
