- gene therapy (where recombinant viruses are the mainstay of the technology);
- molecular biology particularly next generation sequencing and new virus discovery;
- antiviral development;
- epidemiological and public health control.
For medically qualified applicants, the course will benefit those wishing to specialise in virology or infectious diseases, or pursue a clinical academic route in this or related subjects.
The course is also an excellent stepping stone to PhD research in virology or a related subject.
