|Abstract||Literature seminar for students at the masters level and PhD students. Introduction to the current research topics in infectious diseases; Introduction to key pathogens which are studied as model organisms in this field; Overview over key research groups in the field of infectious diseases in Zürich.|
|Objective||Working with the current research literature. Getting to know the key pathogens serving as model organisms and the research technologies currently used in infection biology.|
|Content||for each model pathogen (or key technology):|
1. introduction to the pathogen
2. Discussion of one current research paper.
The paper will be provided by the respective supervisor. He/she will give advice (if required) and guide the respective literature discussion.
|Lecture notes||Teachers will provide the research papers to be discussed.|
Students will prepare handouts for the rest of the group for their assigned seminar.
|Literature||Teachers will provide the research papers to be discussed.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||Restricted to max 22 students. Please sign up until two weeks before the beginning of the semester via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information: 551-1100-00L; your name, your e-mail address, university/eth, students (specialization, semester), PhD students (research group, member of a PhD program? which program?).

|Objective||Weekly seminar about cutting edge topics in immunology and infection biology. Internationally renowned experts present their current research followed by an open discussion.|
The aim of this course is to confront students with current research topics and with scientific presentation. The course offers the opportunity to gain in depth knowledge about diverse topics which are often only briefly touched in the concept courses and to engage in discussion with experts in the field.
|Content||Immunology and infection biology.|
The specific topics are variable and depend each semester on the list of invited experts.
