If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that our immune system is our greatest protector. It helps us fight off colds, flu, or other nasty infections. But have you ever wondered how it all works? Join Paul Klenerman to explore how our different organs and cells work together to help us stay healthy and get rid of any unwanted intruders.


Paul Klenerman is the author of The Immune System: A Very Short Introduction, Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Research Fellow and Professor of Immunology at the University of Oxford. He is also Immune Theme Lead at the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
