The papers in this volume examine the roles of three key immune mechanisms (antigen presentation, T cell priming, and the germinal center reaction) in normal and abnormal immune responses. Further studies explore the various ways in which these mechanisms induce normal immunity or result in and propagate maladaptive responses or diseases such as autoimmunity, immune deficiency, and lymphoma. Novel therapeutic directions and models are also presented.
