Master's Program - Infection Biology

In-depth knowledge of infection biology is needed in work to improve health. There is a growing demand for expertise in this field, particularly in the developing world, where microbial infections are more prevalent, often with devastating consequences.

This program, in collaboration with Uppsala University, focuses on the biological and chemical processes behind the etiology, epidemiology, and evolution of microbial infections, as well as ways of predicting, preventing, tracking and treating infectious diseases.

Content

First-year studies concern the world of microbes and aim to give advanced knowledge of the biological and chemical processes regulating host-pathogen interactions. This knowledge will constitute the basis for more applied topics such as the biology of infectious diseases, how to control infections by antimicrobial therapies and natural immunity and how to understand microbial evolution....
