Course Description

This M.Sc. in Immunology includes study of immunological processes and mechanism, how they contribute to disease and how they might be manipulated therapeutically. By focusing on the molecules, cells, organs and genes of the immune system, their interaction and how they are activated and regulated, students will develop a deep understanding of the pathological processes underpinning immune mediated disease and how they might be controlled. From a practical perspective the course involves in-depth instruction in modern methodologies used in immunology/biomedical research, including the fundamentals of molecular and cellular biology. Students will also be trained in experimental design, data handling and basic research skills.The masters course aims to provide students with a well-balanced and integrated theoretical and practical knowledge of Immunology, and to highlight the progress and intellectual challenges in this discipline. 

 

The following modules are mandatory, and make up the taught components of the course: Basic Immunology; Immunological Technologies; Communicating Science and Critical Analysis; Immunogenetics; Microbe Detection and Evasion; Clinical Immunology; Tumour Immunology; Global Infectious Diseases; Immunotherapeutics and Product Development. In addition, students will undertake a research project, conducted in one of the Immunology groups located within or affiliated to The School of Biochemistry and Immunology and will be required to submit a dissertation.

Richard Wubben - (2017 M.Sc. in Immunology Graduate)

"Students gain an understanding in wide range of topics - including cancer immunology, autoimmunity and viral, bacterial and parasitic Immunology. The teaching staff are experts in their fields and are always very approachable. My favourite part of the M.Sc. in Immunology was the 3-month Research Project, where the student gets to work in one of the many brilliant labs. the combination of taught lectures and a research project made me very employable in the biopharmaceutical industry and it was instrumental in me been given the opportunity to study for my PhD in Trinity"

Aishwarya Vishwanathan - (2019 M.Sc. in Immunology Graduate)

"Having done the M.Sc. Immunology course from Trinity College Dublin, I take immense pride in saying that I have been taught by dedicated and passionate professors, whose labs have been the origin for many popular concepts in Immunology. The engaging teaching methods employed allowed me to learn the fundamentals of Immunology, while co-curricular activities and social events, like guest lectures, allowed me to explore cutting-edge, emerging ideas. Diversity in the classroom further enhanced my learning experience. Everyone on the class came in with different career paths in mind; some inclined towards research and other towards the industry. There were multiple opportunities for me to network and build connections with my potential employers. The program left us all feeling equally prepared and it has greatly facilitated our personal and professional growth."
