This programme will appeal to students who are interested in a range of aspects of the biology of infectious disease in a global context, but with an emphasis on the tropics. Year Three is based in the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine where the focus is on parasitic protozoa and helminths. Modules include topics on parasitology (including immunology and molecular biology), vector biology, chemotherapy, topics in global health, and a research project. A range of current issues will be highlighted, including emerging diseases and the feasibility of disease eradication programmes in the tropics. In addition, students will develop core transferable skills (spoken and written communication, team working, project management and computing) and carry out a major research project.
