MBT353 Microbial Pathogenesis

Breadcrumbs

This course describes the basic concepts of bacterium-host relationships and explores virulence factors that promote colonisation and survival of infecting microorganisms and virulence attributes that damage the host. The course will also explore experimental approaches for investigating bacterium-host interrelationships, cultured cell lines and laboratory animals and their application in studying microbial pathogenicity. The course also explores challenges facing development of vaccines and discovering new antibiotics. The molecular pathogenesis of selected pathogens and the importance of normal microbiota and probiotics in health will also be discussed.
