Contribute To Faster Diagnosis Of Diseases And Better Treatment Options
The Infection and Immunity programme at Utrecht University covers a variety of topics such as fundamental and clinical immunology, vaccines, immunotherapy, mechanisms of infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology of infections, virulence factors of microorganisms, and resistance to treatment.
Emerging infectious are a threat to human and animal well-being. An increasing number of allergies and chronic inflammatory diseases have major impact on individuals and society as a whole. Knowledge of the immune system provides you with the know-how to develop potential health care solutions for cancer, transplantation and downregulation of a hyperactive immune system as for example in rheumatoid arthritis.
Infectious diseases and immunity disorders affect a large part of the population. Therefore, highly trained scientists in infection and immunity are needed for developing fast diagnostic procedures, effective treatment, and preventative measures such as vaccines in order to minimise the impact for individual patients and society.
MSc graduates trained in both fundamental and translational aspects of infection and immunity are in great demand. They will find their way into:
- research in academic hospitals;
- research institutes (fundamental research);
- the pharmaceutical industry;
- policy - making organisations in science and health care;
