O que eu aprenderei?

The University of Glasgow has the largest grouping of human and veterinary virologists in the UK. Fundamental research on viruses and viral diseases lies at the core of our mission to translate knowledge to benefit the health of society. Our research programmes span a wide breadth of topics across whole populations to the subcellular level. Key defining features of our expertise include viral ecology and epidemiology, in vivo patho-genesis, diagnostics, molecular virology, viral immunology, vaccines, viral oncology, structural virology and virus genomics and bioinformatics. These programmes are supported by an extensive and state-of-the-art infrastructure and will help students understand how viruses replicate, disseminate, and sometimes cause disease, enabling students to develop a career as a virologist.


  • Our scientists and clinicians have provided consultancy, contract research and collaborative research that has delivered research findings into real world solutions.
  • This postgraduate degree in Infection Biology allows you to study in an institute housing two UK national centres of excellence in Virology and Parasitology, and active in the Scottish Infection Research Network (SlRN), a key clinical focus on healthcare-related research.
  • You will work in the laboratories of internationally recognised infection biology researchers, conducting high quality basic, translational and clinical science.
  • This MSc in Infection Biology provides access to a combination of highly specialised equipment, unique in Scotland, including cutting edge in vitro and invivo research facilities for biological imaging, high content screening microscopy, and a state of the art polyomics facility bringing together metabolomics, proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, and the integration of data sets with bioinformatics.
  • You can attend guest lectures and workshops from scientists and clinicians working in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology fields.
  • You can carry out a research project in an internationally recognised centre of excellence, working with world-leading researchers in infection biology.
  • This MSc Infection Biology integrates infection biology with cutting edge molecular and cellular techniques, and offers breadth in covering bacteria, viruses and parasites.

  • Students have the opportunity to carry out a research project in an internationally recognised centre of excellence, working with world-leading researchers in the field of infection biology.


Studying virology prepares students for a wide range of careers options not only in basic research in academia but also clinical and veterinary health and the pharmaceutical industry. Many of our students proceed through postgraduate studies in Virology or other infection related subjects. In addition to academia, public health, laboratory diagnostics and the pharmaceutical industry are all work place opportunities that have been taken by our graduates.
