Medical Immunology Department

General Information

Immunology is the study of the immune system, and it enables the students to develop an understanding on what the immune system is and how it works. In more detail, immunology allows students to have a better understanding of the immune system at various depths ranging from molecules, genes, cells, tissues, organs, and their involvement in health and diseases. Immunology is suited for students from clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. This would enable students to boost their prospectus and develop their career within academia, the industry or as clinical scientists.
