Summary

The Global Health, Infection and Immunity MSc will explore some of the major causes of human disease such as tuberculosis, influenza and HIV as well as more focused topics such as infection in special circumstances (e.g. pregnancy) and emerging infectious agents.

You will receive insight into the molecular and cellular basis of the immune system, how it normally protects from infection, and the pathological consequences of inappropriate responses. You will view topics of immunology and infection in a broad sense so as to integrate how the various players act in concert within the whole battlefield. You will study the latest updates in vaccine technology and immunotherapy as well as exploring the mechanisms used by pathogens to evade immune response. This can then be combined with modules from other aspects of global health, allowing you to better understand how major human disease and the immune reaction to them fits within the current global health challenges we face.

Global health is a broad discipline that attracts multidisciplinary involvement from those who wish to pursue an internationally focused career in development, policy, education, research or humanitarian relief. This will include doctors and other health professionals, as well as a range of people with an interest in governance, management, law, politics, economics, policy, science, anthropology, philosophy and ethics.
