MI2021 - Introductory Infectious Diseases and Immunobiology
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
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.
- Principles of infectious disease transmission and establishment;
- Principles of infection control and treatment;
- Aetiology of common and topical infectious diseases;
- Understand the role of the immune response in infectious and non-infectious disease;
- Techniques of microbe manipulation and the aseptic technique.
