1. Critically analyse the roles and interactions of cells and molecules involved in the immune response.2. Critically evaluate the immune response in relation to a range of specific diseases, and to malfunctions of the immune system.

Rationale:
The way in which the human immune system responds to infection is a beautiful, yet complex process. This illustrated report provides you with the opportunity to explore that process in detail. An understanding of how the immune system functions forms a key part of the study of biological sciences at this level particularly for students who wish to start a career in the healthcare sector.

Brief:
In this report you are required to choose a disease caused by a pathogen and describe how the human body’s immune system responds to it, using illustrations to support your description. You are also required to critically analyse the efficacy of the different elements of the immune system in fighting that infection.

Assessment Criteria:
1. Clear, complete and well researched description of the nature of the immune response to the chosen pathogen with appropriate illustrations included. (55%)
2. Well balanced critical analysis of the efficacy of the different elements of the immune system in fighting the chosen pathogen. (35%)
3. Identification of relevant texts which the report will refer to using the Harvard referencing system outlined in the assignment handbook. (10%)

The writer must be English as it is to be written in English, not American or Chinese English. Would rather that not so many American (uni/college) websites were referenced either, I hope you know what I mean by this.

HAVE INCLUDED A FILE called example of a past paper that shows what harvard referencing should look like called EXAMPLE PLEASE LOOK AT THIS.

YOU MUST LOOK AT JOURNALS FOR THIS. Where possible reference from up to date journals (from the last four years) and reference from the suggested reading list at the bottom of the instructions. As a rule use around 1 reference (from different sources) for every 100 words, use journals mainly, up to date books and try to stay away from webpages.

Type of assignment: An Illustrated Report

Word count: 2000 words

Format:
All text should be fully justified, size 12 Arial font, with 1.5 line spacing, and normal margins. The report should contain page numbers and a header indicating your name, the module code and the assignment title. You must include a completed assignment submission cover sheet. Reference relevant sources using the appropriate Harvard Referencing system.
