BIO2106 Medical Microbiology and Immunology 2
The course builds on the level of understanding provided in BIO1104 Medical Microbiology and Immunology 1. There is an increased focus on diagnosis and control of infectious diseases in humans. Areas of specific emphasis include the nature of microbial virulence factors, antimicrobial therapy and mechanisms of resistance and a system approach to clinical infectious disease syndromes. Students will undertake literature searches and report writing training by completing assignment tasks. Students will also be exposed to the theory and applications of conventional and molecular technologies for generating, organizing, analysing and interpreting complex microbiological data. Students will develop microbiological investigative and analytical skills and be able to provide technical reports and recommendations on the management of infectious disease syndromes. Specific Topics will be published in the course handbook.
