Infection and Immunity MSc

Infectious diseases are a key aspect of world health that often get overlooked. However, with the rise in incidence of antibiotic resistance and the increasing threat of emerging pathogens, infectious diseases are now taking their place at the forefront of public health. On this course you will explore the ability of microorganisms to cause disease even in the presence of our complex immune systems. As well as pathogenic mechanisms, you will also focus on current practices and cutting-edge developments in medical interventions to combat, control, and ultimately cure, infectious disease.
