Immunology & Microbiology
Welcome to the website of the Discipline of Immunology and Microbiology.
Immunology is the study of the immune system. That is, the study of how organisms protect themselves by identifying agents (e.g. bacteria, viruses, tumor cells), that may be destructive to the health of the organism.
Microbiology is the study of the very small organisms such as bacteria and viruses.
The school teaches immunology & microbiology in an integrated fashion across a range of the University's degree programs.
Enquiries regarding the Discipline of Immunology and Microbiology should be directed to Professor Paul Foster.
