Dive deep into the complexities of the human immune system to transform the way we treat and prevent disease.
You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of how our immune systems can be harnessed to prevent, treat and cure diseases.
Investigate the role of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and parasites in disease; the molecular basis of immune recognition; and the regulation of immune response in a range of infectious diseases.
Learn immunological techniques for developing vaccines and immunotherapies, as well as practical applications in biotechnology, microbiology, genetics and cell and molecular biology.
You’ll be taught by leading researchers working in laboratories where current medical breakthroughs are taking place. You'll apply your theoretical knowledge and build your technical skills through practical laboratory sessions and small group tutorials.
You’ll be equipped for a range of opportunities in hospitals, research institutions, biotechnology firms, pharmaceutical companies or universities.
Studying immunity and infectious disease will prepare you for further study in the field of medicine or to progress into a research-based honours program.
