1. Choose a point of entry into the human body, and outline potential barriers the pathogen might encounter. 2. Provide an overview of the normal flora in the human body that your pathogen may interact with, and include some challenges that the flora might present.3. Provide an overview of the workings of the innate immune system, including the major components. Are there ways in which your pathogen might slow down or avoid the innate immune system?4. Provide an overview of the workings of the adaptive immune system, including the major components.
