The course is mandatory for advanced undergraduate students in the Immunology program. This "indefinite" course brings cutting-edge topics selected by the lecturers to students. Important achievements published in high-ranked journals are first reviewed in the overview lecture and later discussed during the Journal Club by students themselves in the second turn with special attention to the details of scientific methods, experiment design, data interpretation and visualization. The topic is uniquely selected by the lecturer for each lesson.
