Infection and Immunity

Research on infection and immunity aims to enhance understanding of the mechanisms of host defence against infection, and translate this understanding into prevention and treatment; the research programmes include a wide range of activities including studies of host/pathogen interactions (including work on viruses, bacteria, parasites and spongiform encephalopathy agents), the immune systems of animals and how they respond to pathogen challenge, genetic resistance to disease and epidemiology of disease; these activities are underpinned by major programmes in animals genomics and bioinformatics.

Entry requirements

In order to be considered for the programme we require a relevant undergraduate degree with a UK 2.1 or higher result, or its international equivalent; before making an application, applicants must make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss their research proposal; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
