Our immune system - the battle within
Researchers at the University of Oxford are investigating how the immune system works in order to create new treatments for diseases, such as cancer. In these lessons students can review and revise the immune system by looking at the connection between cell structure and function (KS3), creating a stop-motion animation (KS4), exploring how protein shape is important for function (KS4), and playing top trumps to learn about specific immune cell types (KS5).

KS4 – An Animated Immune System
KS4 – Control of Immunity: Cascades of Shapes
KS5 - Immune Cell Top Trumps
