Masters degrees in Medical Microbiology explore techniques for the analyses of interactions between microorganisms and human hosts, particularly host-pathogen relationships (microbes which cause disease).
Related subjects and postgraduate specialisms include Immunology, Bacteriology and Pathogenesis. Entry requirements normally involve an appropriate undergraduate science degree.
You will explore the biological and pathogenic properties of microbes and their role in health and disease, including an analysis of host reaction to infection (bacterial, viral, and fungal). You will also examine detection, treatment, and control of infection, and drug design and resistance. Immunology is also a component, including study of inherited and acquired immunological disorders, transplantation of organs and tissues, and immunodeficiency disorders.
You will examine these topics via application of microbial genetic and molecular biological techniques, through activities such as data collection and analysis, experiment design, lab testing, bioimaging, and bioinformatics. Consideration is also given to the ethics and safety of medical practise, epidemiology and public health.
Careers may include: clinical and medical practise; roles in pharmaceuticals or the healthcare sector; consultancy and policy-making for government agencies, charities, and NGOs; scientific writing and research.
