Education

Welcome to the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences. We undertake research, education and training in the related areas of immunobiology, 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 and we are 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.
