…learned the latin word for a cow!
“Cow” is “vacca” in latin, and because of Edward Jenner, we get the word “vaccine” from “vacca!”
Pretty cool, huh?
This week at med school, I also learnt that immunology is hard!
This is what the textbook sounds like: “These interactions then promote the binding of the Beta2-integrin, LFA-1 to ICAM-1 and ICAM-2 on the endothelium, resulting in mogration into the lymph node.”
And the pictures in another textbook aren’t much easier to understand!
Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!
