About

The Biology - Immunology and Microbiology program from Uppsala University  focuses on how the immune system discovers and removes pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Overview

This Biology - Immunology and Microbiology program from Uppsala University is the specialisation for those of you who want to become immunologists or microbiologists  and work with questions related to infection biology. You will investigate mechanisms at both cellular and molecular levels. For instance, what happens when the immune system overreacts and allergies or autoimmunity arise?

The core of this specialisation is the immune system and how the various components of this complex defence system cooperate to detect and remove infectious organisms. A key question in this field is how the immune system of humans and other animal species handle bacterial, viral and parasitic infections and how these microorganisms try to escape and elude over defence systems. Factors that influence disease transmission by animal and bacterial vectors are also discussed.

Career

With carefully selected combinations of courses and choice of thesis work you get a good base for research work in the biotech industry, pharmaceutical industry or within academia. We are committed to teach you how to make use of sound theoretical knowledge of applied problems, to be able to present projects and studies orally and in writing, and to work in project form, individually and in groups.
