MI2021 - Introductory Infectious Diseases and Immunobiology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
A review of microbes significant to human and animal diseases is followed by the principles
which underpin the spread and establishment of infectious disease. Common and topical
infectious diseases are presented in an organ system approach where the aetiology,
epidemiology and pathophysiology of the infection is discussed. Treatment and the
control of these conditions are considered. The immune system is presented in the
context of infection and non-infection disease processes. This subject prepares students
who wish to pursue study of clinical microbiology and immunobiology in 3rd year.
- be able to describe the basic principles of infectious disease transmission and establishment
for each organ system;
- Engage with and understand the issues of infectious disease burden and epidemiology
in the tropics;
- be able to outline the principles of infection control and treatment;
- understand the role of the immune response in infectious and non-infectious disease;
- understand the fundamental aspects of the immune response;
- be able to understand related techniques of microbe manipulation and the aseptic technique.
