Infection & Immunity

What's Involved?

Delivered for the first time in 2016/17, Infection and Immunity harmonises the subjects of immunology, microbiology and parasitology. Causes and mechanisms of disease, including pathogens, microbes, and parasites, as well as the immune systems role in managing, contributing to and/or treating infection are explored to enable students to understand how and why the immune system plays a central role in almost all areas of medicine.

Student Experience

The lecturers on this course have been long commended for their enthusiasm and knowledge, coupled with the use of interactive software, students find the lectures engaging. Lab practicals ensure students understand the principles of laboratory diagnosis, while acknowledging the strengths and limitations of such diagnoses.
