Causative agents of blood- and vector-borne tropical diseases; Morphological and molecular characteristics; Epidemiology; Pathogenesis and pathology; Clinical manifestations; Host immune response; Basic and molecular diagnosis; Prevention and control; Vaccine development; Environmental and host nutritional factors; Adaptation of causative agents; Genetic diversity of hosts and causative agents; Drug resistance
Upon completion of this course students will be able to generate connection and plan research work related to blood- and vector-borne tropical diseases for creating the new knowledge in this field. Students are able to work constructively as a team to solve tropical medicine related problems.
Course-level Learning Outcomes: CLOs
At the end of the course, the students should be able to
CLO1: Draw connection of host-agent-environment factors in tropical blood and vector borne diseases
CLO2: Discuss and construct solution plans of blood and vector borne diseases problems using up to date data
CLO3: Comprehensively apply knowledge to answer questions and solve problems related to blood- and vector-borne diseases in the tropics
