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 and microbiology in an integrated fashion across a range of degrees offered at the University of Newcastle.
