MICROBIOLOGY AND CELL BIOLOGY FORORTHOPTICS
Credit points: 15
In this subject concepts in human cell biology, genetics, immunology, and microbiology, will be applied to the pathological mechanisms of dysfunction of the eye. During the learning program, students will develop an understanding of the genetics and biological mechanisms underpinning different types of eye disorders, including: infectious, autoimmune, congenital, genetic, degenerative, neoplastic, toxic and vascular eye disorders. Examples will be used to illustrate these different etiologies. Students will also gain insight into the fundamentals of genetic and molecular diagnostic methods relevant to these ocular conditions.
