Infections are a serious threat to the survival of humans, animals and plants on Earth. Our knowledge of the processes that govern microbial life and evolution must increase if we are to solve acute problems of antimicrobial resistance. There is also a great need to predict and control threatening pandemics and the spread of infectious diseases. The Master Programme in Infection Biology integrates human and veterinary medicine, drug development and food safety, enabling co­operation and crosstalk between different areas of infection biology. This is of particular importance for developing countries where microbial infections are more widespread and might have devastating consequences.
