Microbiology and Immunology at Keele is designed to help you develop a deep understanding of core molecular biology and biological processes, by focusing on two complementary areas of contemporary bioscience. Our comprehensive laboratory programme covers a diverse range of modern biochemical and molecular techniques designed to train you in the skills needed for a career in the field. The programme also encourages you to develop skills in experimental design through enquiry-based learning and will ensure you acquire both independent and team-based skills.

In microbiology you will study the biology, biochemistry and physiology of viruses and microorganisms. You will examine bacteria, fungi and parasites, with a particular emphasis on host-pathogen interactions, the diseases these can cause, the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, as well as their wider application in biotechnology and their critical roles in global ecosystems. In immunology you will study the role of the immune's system in health and disease. You will explore the enormous diversity of the human immune system, the importance of this in host-pathogen interactions and how such knowledge is essential in the development of new biotechnological approaches to disease treatment and prevention, such as vaccines.
