The Master's in Infection and Immunity gives you the opportunity to gain profound knowledge of fundamental and translational immunology through a multidisciplinary research approach.

The Master's programme in Infection and Immunity aims to give young scientists the opportunity to gain profound knowledge of fundamental and translational immunology, vaccination strategies, immunotherapy, mechanisms of infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology of infections, virulence factors of micro-organisms and resistance to therapy.
Infectious diseases and immunity disorders are a continuous threat to human and animal life and well-being.
As part of this two year research programme you will undertake a major and a minor research project that complement each other (one in immunology and one in microbiology/ infectious diseases). You will also follow theoretical courses and seminars, make presentations regarding your own research, and write a Master's thesis.
Scientists who possess expert knowledge in both fundamental and disease-oriented aspects of immunology and infection are in great demand; they will find careers in academic hospitals, research institutes, the pharmaceutical industry, and policy-making.
