Teaching

  • PM-250 Infectious Disease and Parasitology

    The course will build on the fundamentals of microbiology and introduce new topics in bacteriology, mycology and parasitology. Level 5 Immunology (PM-249) is a pre-requisite. The course covers the fundamentals of infectious diseases, including clinical aspects, treatment / prevention, and experimental approaches to the study of infectious and parasitic organisms. The course will also cover topics including disease outbreaks, beneficial parasites, tropical disease and behaviour-modifying parasites.

  • PM-262 Antimicrobial therapy and resistance

    This module will focus on the principles of antimicrobial therapy and development of resistance. This is one of the most important issues facing modern medicine and the module will have a clinical emphasis. The module will provide an understanding of the development, mechanisms and implications of antimicrobial resistance and the principles of appropriate prescribing and antibiotic stewardship, with particular reference to current UK clinical practice. Resistance in bacteria (including mycobacteria) and viruses will be covered. Dry practicals will be used to teach relevant test interpretation.

  • PM-304C Prosiect Ymchwil Biofoleciwlaidd

    Profiad gwaith mewn labordy ymchwil.

  • PM-347 Human Immunopathology

    The module aims to provide students with a greater understanding of the human immune system and the causes of a range of diseases associated with immune dysfunction including autoimmune diseases, metabolic disorders and neurological conditions.

  • PMCM00 Clinical Infection Therapy

    This module encompasses clinical microbiology and infection, as applied in a health service setting. Over one week, clinical, laboratory and public health aspects of infection will all be covered. There will be an emphasis on antimicrobial use and resistance mechanisms, and the strategies applied by health professionals to limit resistance, in terms of antimicrobial stewardship and infection control. The module is suitable for health professionals working in fields related to infection, such as antimicrobial pharmacists and infection control nurses, as well as for all students interested in this applied subject area.

  • PMGM15 Application of Genomics in Infectious Disease

    In this module the student will learn about the genomic structure of infectious agents, implication of acquisition or loss of nucleotides, genes and plasmids on pathogenicity, sensitivity of a pathogen to drug treatment and outbreak control.

  • PMZM00 Clinical Infection Therapy

    This module encompasses clinical microbiology and infection, as applied in a health service setting. Over one week, clinical, laboratory and public health aspects of infection will all be covered. There will be an emphasis on antimicrobial use and resistance mechanisms, and the strategies applied by health professionals to limit resistance, in terms of antimicrobial stewardship and infection control. The module is suitable for helath professionals working in fields related to infection, such as antimicrobial pharmacists and infection control nurses, as well as for all students interested in this applied subject area.
