Molecular Basis of Bacterial Infection - LIFE96025

Aims

This course aims to develop an understanding, by undergraduate students, of some of the fundamental principles of infectious diseases. They will learn the basic mechanisms that determine the outcome of bacterial pathogen – host cell interactions. Bacterial infections and diseases result from a “dialogue” between the bacterial and eukaryotic cells rather than being a bacterial “monologue”. This phenomenon will be at the heat of the course. The students will be exposed to biochemical, molecular and cellular technologies.
