M.Sc. in Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of the role of micro-organisms in plant, human and animal disease and the ways to prevent and cure them. It is a field of applied biology and chemistry, appropriate for students primarily interested in the delivery of health services. Microbiologist, also referred to as clinical laboratory scientist, in the detective of health care world. Using analytical techniques its searches for clues both to add in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and to help patient stay healthy.This programme provides comprehensive knowledge and practical training in the spread of micro-organisms (predominantly bacterial and viral pathogens), disease causation and diagnosis and treatment of pathogens significant to public health. The increasing incidence of microbial infections worldwide is being compounded by the rapid evolution of drug-resistant variants and opportunistic infections by other organisms. The curriculum reflects the importance of genomics and molecular techniques in both diagnostics and the study of pathogenesis.
