Semester 2

The aim of this module is to introduce students to molecular, cellular and biochemical studies on selected parasitic protozoa. Students will gain an understanding of selected parasites, common approaches to their study and development of chemotherapies against them. Topics covered will reflect key areas such as genetic approaches, immune evasion, drug delivery, drug targets and drug mode-of-action.
