Here's an interesting thought - a game made to teach principles of immunology.

May superficially remind you of microsurgeon.

Their description:

To play the game, users control a microscopic robot and navigate through a first-person 3D body, completing a series of stepwise missions to detect a bacterial infection and activate the appropriate defensive immune cells. These stepwise missions follow the actual biological process that occurs during an infection and how immune cells are stimulated to kill the bacteria.
I don't know how fun it is, but at least they're trying.
