On successful completion of this module, students will:
1. Be able to synthesis the key concepts in the field of Infection Biology into a holistic framework.
2. Hypothesis on how novel research approaches will contribute to disease surveillance, diagnosis, treatment and management.
3. Devise new approaches to their own research work based on the concepts learnt in the module.
4. Be able to plan how to write a grant application
Students will learn key concepts in Infection Biology from the bottom up, starting with the molecular basis of host-pathogen interaction, moving to animal models of disease, then to population level studies in epidemiology, and finally to therapeutics. Students will also receive guidance on how to write a grant as this will be the mode of assessment for this module.
