Overview

Despite the development of antibiotics and vaccines, infectious diseases remain the world’s biggest killers. This programme explores how microbes infect us and overcome the protective armoury of our immune system. You will learn how antibiotics and antivirals work and how vaccines activate our immune system. You will discover how new technologies are being harnessed to monitor disease transmission, learn how to diagnose disease or design new drugs and vaccines.

Students have conducted research projects investigating the immune response to meningitis and tuberculosis, microbial production of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance.

Many of our graduates work for agencies responsible for infectious disease surveillance, prevention and control. Our graduates have also pursued research careers in academia, public health agencies and pharmaceutical companies.
