Course content

Designed in collaboration with the NHS, throughout your course you’ll learn about the latest clinical practice in the fast-moving area of antimicrobial resistance. Guest lectures from experts in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, and public health policy introduce you to the different approaches that are being used to overcome this global threat

You’ll get hands-on in the lab with modules led by our scientists and clinicians to address basic biological problems in understanding the breadth of host-pathogen interaction.

The biggest part of the course is the Research Project in Antimicrobial Resistance. Here you’ll spend three months researching an area of your choice that matches your future career aspirations and may include microbiology and host-pathogen interactions, public health, or drug discovery and new therapies. Some students may have the opportunity to complete their research project with the NHS.
