Dear newsgroup members,

I am an undergraduate student who has an interest in immunology field. I have read quite a lot of articles about immunology lately which increase my interest a lot in this area. Therefore this semester I take the "real" immunology course. Next semester I have to do an internship and I am planning to do my internship in immunology. I searched for available projects and find an interesting project about immunology system in fish. Actually I am interested more in exploring human immune system since there are a lot of important and exciting topics in human area. Thus, I need your advise now. Is fish immunology a good model for human immune system? I know that fish is not the same with human, but can I use my knowledge about fish immune system to apply it in human system? Will it be useful and are they have similar basic immune systems and mechanisms?

Thanks in advance for your help and advise.      

Emilie Papaulos.
