The Immune System - Fighting Infection by Clonal Selection

'Fighting Infection by Clonal Selection' was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Burnet's Clonal Selection Theory. The animation shows how clonal selection works during a bacterial infection of the throat. Frank Macfarlane Burnet was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1960 and is widely acknowledged as the founder of modern immunology.
