Major lecture topics will be devoted to structure and function relationships in pathogenic micro-organisms and how these are expressed in host-parasite interactions. Microbial diseases of specific organ systems will be examined as will host response mechanisms. The laboratory will emphasize fundamental microbial techniques, and use them to illustrate lecture content.
