I am delighted to write this foreword for the book not only because Dr. Ch. Vijaya, the author of the book, Principles of Immunology has been known to me for more than ten years as Faculty member at Vikrama Simhapuri University, Nellore but also because I had the opportunity as a Vice-Chancellor of V. S. University to closely observe and assess her academic accomplishments on several occasions. Immunology is expanding significantly. In fact, a vast amount of information has been accumulated in this discipline during the past several years. The focus of the book is not only an important addition to the science of immunology and each chapter covers best available information. This helpful resource provides information on current state of various fields of immunology from an evolutionary perspective, furnishing a valuable and holistic approach for teaching immunology and its applications at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels to elucidate understanding and help to solve problems in biology. The author has focused on the role of body’s immune system explaining the principles, mechanisms and study methods with relevant literature. Overall, this book would be immensely helpful for college students studying biosciences. I compliment the author for her contribution to the field of Immunology.
