During practical sessions, students will be able to apply knowledge of host defence mechanisms, immunisation and vaccine technologies, and the management of the spread of infectious disease in the context of specific diseases. Learning and assessment tasks will enhance the students understanding of infectious diseases, the immune response to infectious disease, diagnosis, the development of candidate vaccines and the identification of pharmacological targets for antimicrobial therapeutics.
