This course builds on the theoretical and laboratory skills acquired in BIO2106 Medical Microbiology and Immunology 2 with a focus on enabling students to further develop their investigative and analytical skills in the assessment and interpretation of microbiological data. Students will augment their theoretical knowledge in the nature of the complex interaction of microbial pathogens and host immunological responses with an emphasis on exploring major advances in our understanding of humoral and cell mediated immune responses pathways. Analysis of complex case studies in infectious syndromes including emerging communicable diseases will continue to provide opportunities for students to develop their investigative and reporting skills. This course will provide students an opportunity to further advance their 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.
