Immunology LAB

Lector: Andrea Steinbauer, BSc MSc, FH-Prof.in Univ.Doz.in Dr.in Ines Swoboda

3 SWS
3 ECTS

Lecture contents

In the laboratory the students will deepen their theoretical, immunological knowledge with examples from the field of Allergy. Students learn important immunological methods (ELISA, Western blot, immuno screening of cDNA libraries, isolation of human leukocytes, flow cytometry, cell activation test) and learn how these methods can be used for the isolation and immunological characterization of allergens.

Infection Biology VO

Lector: FH-Prof.in Univ.Doz.in Dr.in Ines Swoboda

1 SWS
2 ECTS

Lecture contents

The lecture deals with the representation of the complex interactions between host and pathogen during infectious diseases. First, the defense mechanisms of the host, the innate and the adaptive immune system, are examined in detail. Then strategies of infection developed by pathogens to overcome host defense, survival and spread are presented. On the basis of model organisms infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and parasites are discussed in more detail. Furthermore, diagnostic and clinical aspects and fundamentals of antimicrobial and antiviral therapy are discussed. Finally, the principles and the most important basic concepts and methods of epidemiology are presented.

2 SWS
3 ECTS

Lecture contents

The students get to know the most important human pathogenic bacteria, fungi and parasites. The organizing principles are presented, which are used to investigate the relationship between microorganisms, and the resulting taxonomy will be explained. Furthermore, methods and techniques are presented, which are currently used for the diagnosis of microbes, with a special focus on the molecular diagnostics and molecular typing of highly pathogenic bacterial pathogens.
