The Immunopharmacology minor covers Microbiology, Drug Discovery and Development, Immunology and Pharmacology. It focuses on the micro-organisms that cause human disease, their transmission and infection control, as well as the application of microbiology in medicine and drug development. It provides a pathway to understanding how the immune system can be exploited to develop novel therapies via a pharmacological approach. This minor is vital for students wanting to explore post graduate research or work in large companies which develop pharmaceutical products and their application to disease.
