Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Microbiology and Immunology concentrates on three closely linked areas: molecular and cellular immunology, molecular and biochemical microbiology, and eukaryotic and prokaryotic molecular genetics. The Graduate Program is highly interactive. There are extensive collaborative interactions of the faculty within the program with other faculty of the School of Medicine and the University, and with investigators in other institutions. The faculty of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology is strongly committed to maintaining an excellent graduate program and to creating a strong academic environment in which graduate students are given every opportunity to experience the excitement of discovery and to develop into independent scientists who will initiate and maintain their own research programs. The research of the faculty is in the frontier of several areas of Microbiology and Immunology. This has been recognized in various ways, including the award to the faculty of substantial peer-reviewed grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other agencies, and the appointment of members of the faculty to many study sections, national and international committees and editorial boards.
