Aims, contents and method of the course

Cellular Microbiology. Scope: a better understanding of the properties that allow a potentially harmful interaction of the microbes with a multicellular host; therefore ultimately a better understanding of the causes, pathogenesis, spreading, therapy and prevention of infectious diseases.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Participants have understood the principles of host-pathogen interactions. This includes: the methods used to study host-pathogen interactions; the pathogen-induced processes governing entry into the host and host colonization; the reaction of the host to pathogens; the mechanisms whereby the microorganisms bypass the immune system; the mechanisms that trigger pathogen and host-induced disease symptoms.
Maximum points: 20. Usually 4 questions, 5 points/question
