Education Aims: This module will illustrate how viruses interact with cells, what are the underlying molecular mechanisms of infection and replication, and how these interactions lead to clinical disease.
Learning Outcomes: This module will address:1. The molecular basis of the pathogenicity of a number of important human viral pathogens. 2. Important clinical features (presentation, diagnosis, prognosis and management) of infection with these agents. 3. Particular emphasis will be given to the pathogenesis and clinical features of infection caused by the human-herpes viruses, human immunodeficiency virus, and hepatitis viruses. 4. Mechanisms and clinical usage of currently licensed antiviral drugs.
