The mission of our faculty is to conduct innovative and impactful research in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics and to train students and postdoctoral fellows for careers as biomedical scientists. Our faculty also instruct in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Medical School and often collaborate with clinical scientists to facilitate the translation of bench to bedside therapies to treat human diseases. Our students acquire professional training while carrying out independent research projects in microbial pathogenesis and physiology, the immune response, and host interactions with microbial pathogens. Our administrative and research staff strive to support the research, teaching and service activities of our students and faculty.
