M.Sc. Programme in Medical Microbiology

However, vaccines and effective antimicrobial agents are still not available for many viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic diseases which continue to affect millions of human beings every year. In addition, the emergence of multi-resistant microbes has reduced the effectiveness of many currently available antimicrobial agents. Newly emerging infections, travel associated infections and the treat of bioterrorism bring fresh threats to human beings throughout the world. Effective control of infective diseases requires a multi-pronged approach, central to which is the availability of a network of efficient and reliable microbiology diagnostic and reference laboratories.
