Program Description:

In the Department of Microbiology and Immunology students acquire a broad breadth of knowledge in microbiology, molecular biology, and immunology as well as depth in a particular elective field. The Department of Microbiology and Immunology does not specify prerequisite undergraduate courses, but a background in chemistry (qualitative and quantitative analysis, physical, and organic), physics, mathematics (including calculus), botany, or zoology is desirable. Deficiencies in these subjects may have to be remedied after admission. Areas available for thesis research include molecular biology of tumor cells, cancer vaccines, the role of stem cells in cancer, bacterial genetics, pathogenesis of infectious disease, structure and function of influenza virus antigens, molecular virology, and the biochemistry and genetics of emerging bacterial pathogens.
