Immunology

Honours

Immunology examines the defence mechanisms that protect humans against infections and cancers, and draws together studies in immunology, microbiology, biology, biochemistry, pathology and physiology. Studies in immunology are leading to advances in clinical medicine, including understanding allergies, transplant rejection, auto immune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and insulin-dependent diabetes, and the development of new vaccines. In addition, immunological techniques are widely used in disciplines such as biochemistry, endocrinology, microbiology, molecular biology and genetics.
