This programme combines theoretical knowledge and practical training in the immunology of infectious diseases through comprehensive teaching and research methods. You will gain specialised skills in applying scientific concepts, evaluating scientific data and carrying out modern immunological techniques.
The programme will enable you to:
- demonstrate specialist knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of host immunity to infection against human pathogens
- apply your knowledge to modern molecular and cellular techniques for assessing immune responses to pathogens
- critically assess, select and apply appropriate research methods to investigate basic immunological mechanisms and applied issues in the immunology of infection
- critically evaluate primary scientific data and the published scientific literature
- integrate and present key immunological concepts at an advanced level
Graduates from this programme go into research positions in academia and industry, and further training such as PhD study.
