About Us

The Graduate Program in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics (MIMG) awards a PhD to trainees who complete a mentored research dissertation as an independent investigator. MIMG has a national reputation as a premier research program. Our faculty maintain research laboratories located within the Basic Science Building, the Children’s Research Institute, the Blood Research Institute, the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund Center, the Max McGee National Research Center for Juvenile Diabetes, the Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center, and the Center for Infectious Disease Research.  

Faculty research spans a broad range of interests including, viral and bacterial infection and pathogenesis, inflammation and immunology, enzymology and metabolism, molecular genetics, and signaling and gene expression. Our faculty address questions at the cellular and molecular level, using contemporary technology and approaches. More than 30 faculty also serve as graduate student research mentors. Many graduates of our Program conduct postdoctoral studies and then serve as faculty at academic medical centers or scientists in research institutes, industry, and government.
