Final year honours schools in Infection and Immunity and Molecular Medicine

The Infection and Immunity option covers the development of the immune system, and its role during health and disease. This is integrated with discussion of bacterial, viral, and protozoal pathogens. The Molecular Medicine course includes themes covering the 'language' of eukaryotic genes and their regulation, the molecular genetics of human disease, developmental biology, chromosome biology, and the impact of these scientific areas on the current development of molecular and cellular therapies.

Integrative teaching sessions in the final term then prepare students for individual aspects of the written FHS exams. If you have a University of Oxford login, details of courses are found at and
