Course content

The School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences lead research, education and training at King's in the related areas of Immunology, Inflammation and Infectious Diseases – with the collective goal of improving human health and wellbeing.

Our research focuses on understanding the immune system, and how it functions in times of health and disease. Our clinical and discovery scientists collaborate widely to work on an inspiring breadth of subjects employing methodologies that span atomic level dissection of molecular and cell function, through to the development of innovative new therapies and clinical trials. This multi-disciplinary approach enables us to tackle cutting-edge questions in areas of biology and medicine such as asthma, allergy, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, organ rejection, vaccination, and a range of bacterial and viral infections including HIV and Ebola virus.

Our School is deeply committed to educating the next generations of scientists, researchers and clinicians. High-quality teaching and training are delivered through a raft of research-inspired programmes for medical and biomedical science undergraduates, masters and PhD students, clinical trainees and post-doctoral fellows.
