    The definitive text—completely updated and revised

    Explore the premier text for immunology at the advanced undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels. Beginning students appreciate the book’s clear writing and informative illustrations, while advanced students and working immunologists value its comprehensive scope and depth. This edition is thoroughly revised and up to date with significant developments in the field, especially on the topic of innate immunity.

    A consistent viewpoint promotes understanding

    This text presents the immune system from the point of view of the host’s interaction with an environment full of microbes and pathogens. New for the Ninth Edition, the text is now organized around the concept of modular immune responses, combining innate and adaptive immunity into effector modules and explaining the integration of the innate and adaptive immune response. 

    Updated to reflect the latest research advances

    The pace of discovery in immunology moves fast. New or expanded coverage includes: the latest developments on innate lymphoid cells and innate sensing mechanisms, including cyclic GMP-AMP synthase (cGAS) and activation of the STING pathway, an in-depth handling of follicular helper T cells and their role in B-cell class switching and affinity maturation, cytoskeletal reorganization and integrin activation in antigen receptor signaling, expanded coverage on Akt and mTOR signaling, and more. 

    A dynamic art program helps students visualize important concepts

    Students benefit from distinct and consistent iconography designed to enhance and extend the principles presented in the text. The full-color art program also features micrographs and photographs that have been thoroughly updated to include better images of protein structure and more precise micrographs, plus 100 new figures have been added. 

    Tools to assess understanding

    End-of-chapter questions have been completely revised and include a variety of question types to help students review important concepts. Additionally, the test bank, written by Leslie Berg (University of Massachusetts Medical School), features a comprehensive set of questions to assess student understanding.
