ADVANCED MEDICAL AND VETERINARY MICROBIOLOGY
Credit points: 30
This subject deals with disease causation by viruses, bacteria and eukaryotic microbes. Each of these three components is designed to give students a better understanding of disease-causing microorganisms, their life cycles, how they 'hijack' and control their host cells in order to initiate infection, cause disease and replicate. The subject will cover a number of significant pathogens including influenza, HIV, Hepatitis, Helicobacter, Salmonella and Plasmodium spp, Trypanosome spp and Leishmania spp. as well as concepts of emerging pathogenic infections, how this occurs, and what we can do to stop them.
