Medical microbiology

(Redirected from Topic:Medical microbiology)

Medical Microbiology is concerned with how the human body interacts with bacteria, viruses, fungi and prions. Topics include the roles of non-pathogenic bacteria in normal health and disease processes that involve pathogenic micro-organisms or an abnormal response of the body to micro-organisms. The Department of Medical Microbiology works in close cooperation with the more general Microbiology Department.
