Virology & Immunology

Years one and two provide a broad background in biomedical science, as well as viruses and the diseases they cause. You will study the immune system and how it controls infection. You will also learn about autoimmune diseases that can occur if the immune system attacks the body's own tissues rather than an infectious agent. In your final year, you will review the main viral diseases of humankind in terms of their natural history, biology, molecular biology, immunology, pathogenesis and epidemiology. These include HIV, hepatitis B and C, papilloma, influenza and measles, among others. You will learn about cutting-edge issues in virology and immunology, including emerging viruses such as the Marburg and Ebola viruses. You will also learn about the problems associated with the production of vaccines. You will normally work on a research project in either virology or immunology.
