The department contributes both to Undergraduate and Graduate level teaching. The Masters programme in Microbiology & Immunology is administered by the department.
Basic Medical Science Course: The molecular and cell biology of infectious agents of medical importance. Principles of host-parasite relationship and pathogenesis of viral, bacterial and parasitic infectons. Toxonomy and classification of pathogenic microorganisms and laboratory identification of those microorganisms. The structural and molecular basis of immune system. Principles of immune reactivity and its applications for detection and follow-up of infection.
Organ Systems Course: Fundamentals of etiology, pathogenesis and laboratory diagnosis of bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infections in different organ systems. The basic mechanisms of immune reactivity to tumor and graft and general characteristics of immunodeficiencies and hypersensitivity reaction. Pathogenesis, immunodiagnosis and immunotherapy of organ specific and systemic immune mediated disease.
Clinical Sciences Course: Problem solving based teaching of clinical laboratory medicine (in close collaboration with the Department of Pathology and clinical departments). Substantial contribution to the clinical clerkships in multi-disciplinary seminars.
The MSc and PhD programs in Microbiology and Immunology provide students with core knowledge at the respective levels in cellular and molecular immunology, virology and bacteriology. Special strengths within the Department include host-pathogen interactions, molecular epidemiology of bacterial pathogens, retroviral vectors for gene therapy, virus-associated malignancies, cancer immunotherapy and immune system-mediated diseases. The Department has strong collaborations with different departments in CMHS and the UAEU, hospitals and research institutions within the UAE, and with internationally reputed universities.
