This course builds on the fundamental theory and practical laboratory skills provided in BIO1104 Medical Microbiology and Immunology 1 with an increased focus on the development of assessment and interpretive strategies of microbiological data.. Areas of specific emphasis include the nature of the complex interaction of microbial virulence factors with host immunological responses that may result in an infectious disease outcome. Students will be provided an opportunity to develop practical skills in a setting that will also encourage critical thinking during the generation, analysis, interpretation and reporting of complex microbiological data.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for both external and on-campus students.
