Study Plan

Microbial diseases are with us daily and continue to be one of the main contributors to global mortality and morbidity. The emergence of new pathogens, the increasing development of drug resistance, and the threat of bioterrorism have combined to create an increased demand for investigations into disease mechanisms and the body’s ability to combat the organisms responsible. Along with those basic studies, effective diagnostic algorithms are needed to quickly identify infectious diseases and prevent their spread. This chapter explores the general classes and causes of microbial diseases and introduces the art of diagnosis.
