Course content

This course focuses on how the body defends itself against disease. It helps us understand processes of viral, bacterial or parasitic infection and how the immune system is sometimes tricked into attacking its own tissue, leading to diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes or allergy.

  • statistics

  • career development
  • ethics
  • science writing skills
  • your ability to design experiments and analyse sophisticated datasets
