Microbiology and Immunology
Microbiology and Immunology is a scientific discipline that has arisen from analysing the nature of microbes and host-microbe interactions. Our goal is to train excellent biomedical researchers, and instill in them a desire to be independent and creative investigators. Our greatest resource is the quality of our active research staff and their commitment to producing high quality graduates.
The Discipline offers subjects that allow a mastery of concepts central to the field of microbiology and immunology, while emphasising active student involvement in the laboratory. Among the major topics covered are bacterial, parasite and viral pathogenesis and the immunological host response to these infectious agents.
