The immune system is primarily involved in protection against pathogens and opportunistic organisms. Similar to a nations defence organization, the immune system involves different components. This diversity allows the immune system to defend against different types of attacks by microbes. The past century has witnessed tremendous progress in understanding the components and mechanisms involved in the immune response. This article attempts to highlight areas of active research in basic immunology in the coming years.
