Course summary

**Overview**In the midst of a pandemic, societal awareness of the importance of microbiology and microbiologists has never been more evident. However, beyond the pandemic, microbiology underpins many other major issues of our time and we need to train the next generation of microbiologists to be able to address these problems. Microbes impact the health and wellbeing of humans and animals in a variety of ways. Problems include superbugs resistant to the majority of clinically available antibiotics and microbes as the causative agent of chronic diseases such as cancer. Microbes are also crucial factors in causing and solving major environmental issues such as production and consumption of greenhouse gases, climate change and the longevity of planet Earth through novel mechanisms of energy production. Using the breadth of experience and research excellence at UEA and at research institutes across the Norwich Research Park join us to explore and research the diverse and critical impact that Microbiology plays in key aspects of our everyday lives. **About This Course**The School of Biological Sciences brings a strong research-led ethos to every course we offer. Microbiology research topics range from the biochemical, molecular and cellular levels to ecological interactions and evolutionary processes. Our degree ensures that the full spectrum of microbiology and underlying concepts are established in alongside a basis in other related aspects of Biology including Biochemistry and Genetics. This foundation will be developed through a range of compulsory and optional modules, allowing students to specialise in specific areas of microbiology, as well as a Microbiology focused research project in the final year. Our students benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes: the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute and the new £75-million Quadram Institute, all of which have microbiology related research programmes and internationally recognized microbiologists. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
