In your first year, you will gain a broad understanding of biomedical science and take units in microbiology and diseases caused by microorganisms. In addition to learning about the immune system, you will also study pathology and biochemistry. In year two, you will study the cellular and molecular basis of human diseases caused by microorganisms such as shigella and tuberculosis, and viruses. As well as learning about the immune response to a variety of infectious microbes, you will investigate how bacteria acquire antibiotic resistance. Our eBiolabs dynamic laboratory manual is available to help you prepare for practical laboratory sessions in the first and second year. In your final year, you will take three infection units and an optional unit. You will also undertake a research project or scientific dissertation working in a research group either within the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, or in one of the surrounding hospitals. Your work may even be published in scientific literature.
