Students learn about clinically relevant pathogens through an introductory module on medical microbiology and 2 specialised modules on bacterial and viral pathogenesis. Students learn about the immune system through an introductory module on the theme of immunity and the immune system and a module on the ability of the innate immune system to sense the presence of pathogens and instruct the acquired immune system. Therapeutic targets and tools are discussed in the therapeutic immunology module. Provision for the development of practical research skills is offered by the research methods in immunology and microbiology module, and a research project leading to a dissertation.
