Learning Objectives

The Module is a part of the course Public health and indoor environment, offered as optional course in the Biomolecular and Health Sciences  PhD program.

The objective of the module is to provide students with information about main methods for the detection of some environmental microbial species relevant for human health.


Various microbial species, including human pathogens such as Legionella pneumophila and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, can be isolated from indoor environments. Rapid detection and characterization of environmental pathogens can help to the effective control of their spread and may contribute to the epidemiological understanding of related diseases.
