Course Introduction

This course aims to give students an in'depth understanding of disease processes and complement this with the study of an elected specialist discipline within pathology (haematology or medical microbiology); academic knowledge is linked to the practical applications of biomedical science particularly in relation to modern diagnostic methods; students are familiarised with: the theoretical and practical aspects of molecular medicine used in research and hospital laboratories; the molecular basis of immunological mechanisms; and cellular mechanisms of disease, the physiological manifestations and implications to public health.
