Microbiology (Bacteriology) specialism

Growing resistance to antibiotics poses a grave threat to human health and developing novel strategies to combat bacterial infections is one of this century’s most important scientific challenges.

Microbiology at the Institute of Infection, Immunology and Inflammation is focused on a molecular understanding of bacterial pathogenesis and utilising this to develop novel therapeutics for the treatment of bacterial infections. Through specialising in microbiology, students will be able to pursue careers developing new medicines, tackling diseases and improving the environment.

We have expertise in areas of both medical and veterinary microbiology covering a wide range of topics. These relate to understanding the pathogenesis of infectious disease and to the development of new and improved vaccines and therapeutics.
