Course content

Microbiology at Aberdeen allows you to understand advances in microbiology, adaptation, host-pathogen interactions and infection and disease processes. You learn with established and renowned international researchers and there are opportunities to learn and apply knowledge in practical situations. You also learn about applied statistics methods, bioinformatics and immunology plus regulation and genome enabled medicines.

This programme is designed to provide advanced training in molecular microbiology. You will investigate molecular microbiology, host-pathogen interactions and immune system interactions by pathogens, environmental microbiology, and the core physiology and biochemistry of bacterial and fungal pathogens. Bioinformatics and biotechnology areas are currently in high growth within innovation markets due to major advances in the discipline areas, IOT and Photonics advances and customised methods of treating disease at source within advanced stratified medicine for example. Careers upon graduation can include hospital diagnostics, pathology laboratories and microbiology research. There is a lot of scope to develop innovation in this subject area if you continue to apply innovative research towards new solutions within biological patents.  Scottish innovation centres you may be interested in finding out about if you want to continue within research and innovation at SMS-IC, IBioIC, DHI and CENSIS or if you live within England the CPI. All of these innovation centres allow for exciting new research and upstream testing towards new spin out companies or product lines.
