Course Summary

Overview:

The School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences lead research, education and training at King's in the related areas of Immunology, Inflammation and Infectious Diseases – with the collective goal of improving human health and wellbeing.

Our research focuses on understanding the immune system, and how it functions in times of health and disease. Our clinical and discovery scientists collaborate widely to work on an inspiring breadth of subjects employing methodologies that span atomic level dissection of molecular and cell function, through to the development of innovative new therapies and clinical trials. This multi-disciplinary approach enables us to tackle cutting-edge questions in areas of biology and medicine such as asthma, allergy, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, organ rejection, vaccination, and a range of bacterial and viral infections including HIV and Ebola virus.

Our School is deeply committed to educating the next generations of scientists, researchers and clinicians. High-quality teaching and training are delivered through a raft of research-inspired programmes for medical and biomedical science undergraduates, masters and PhD students, clinical trainees and post-doctoral fellows.

Our academic programmes of research-inspired teaching and clinical practice are embedded across our three departments:

Department of Infectious Diseases
Department of Inflammation Biology
Peter Gorer Department of Immunology.

Description:

Our mission is to deliver world-class research and education focusing on the immune system and how it functions during health and disease.

Our multidisciplinary research has applications in many areas of medicine, particularly in the fields of organ transplantation, oncology, diabetes, rheumatology, virology, immunology, hepatology, vaccines and many more.

From leading large European consortiums into the effect of the microbiome on chronic liver disease to facilitating local Public, Patient Involvement groups and conducting a national survey on the state of rheumatoid arthritis care, we work across disciplines and have many partners in the United Kingdom and globally.

Course study environment:

Students work alongside staff researchers and are supervised by two members of academic staff. Each student has a dedicated Thesis Progression Committee that monitors students' progress and gives advice and support. Each department has a local Postgraduate Research Coordinator, and the school has an academic lead for postgraduate research.
