Research at Liverpool
Research in Immunology is based in new laboratories at three sites, the Ronald Ross Building, Leahurst. It encompasses studies of the immune responses to and vaccination against a range of bacterial, viral and parasitic pathogens including: Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Japanese encephalitis virus, Zika virus, influenza virus, HIV, cytomegalovirus and other herpesviruses, chicken metapneumovirus, Salmonella, Treponema, Onchocerca, Fasciola, cyathostomins, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Toxoplasma and Neospora caninum.
The Immunology MPhil/PhD/MD programme offered at the University of Liverpool can be thought of as a shorter version of the PhD. It requires the same research skills, training, planning, and project management. It can be a way to assess whether you wish to undertake doctoral research - or it can be taken for its own sake.
