Summary

 

Disease Ecology and Epidemiology - LIFE96040

Aims

The course delves into the basics of biology of diseases and how we measure and model disease processes. The module is built around the pathogen as a concept and uses examples to illustrate and question the ecological and evolutionary drivers of disease, and thus evaluates our ability to control these. The module builds on first and second year teaching in microbiology, evolution and ecology and unifies these as disease ecology and epidemiology.
