Our immune system has evolved to deal with a host of challenges, yet the microbes that can infect us have also developed ways to evade and manipulate host immunity. As we learn more about the complex interplay between immunology and the microbes that live in and on us, we are realising the potential we have to develop novel medicines and therapies to heal ourselves. Sheena Cruickshank will take you on a quick tour of some of these remarkable developments in immunology as well as introduce you to some of the incredible microbes that could unlock the potential of our immune system.
