The immune system is a vital component of our body that helps us to fight against infectious diseases such as the common cold. As we get older, this defense mechanism undergoes a number of changes that impairs its ability to function properly. This presentation will introduce the immune system as well as our current definition of aging and its impact on immunity against infection.

Presented by SciChat and the University of Toronto's Department of Immunology.
