Professor Zinkernagel speaks about some historical and more recent aspects of immunology. Although we do know a lot, only about half of what we think we know is usually true - we just don't know which half!
Professor Townsend tells us about lessons to be drawn from the history of immunology in Oxford, from 1979 onwards, until his current research on active and passive immunity to influenza.
Professor James Hildreth tells us about Immunology in Oxford at the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s when he started a DPhil project as a Rhode Scholar. Professor Hildreth worked on the debate of Altered Self vs Dual Recognition, using a new tool at the time, monoclonal antibodies.
