Work with our internationally recognized faculty to explore the science of infectious disease. Our focus on mentoring and teamwork will support your training.
Our research on bacterial pathogens focuses primarily on how these simple, single-celled organisms cause disease.
Our research on pathogenic eukaryotes focuses on the basic biology of these complex pathogens and on host interactions in response to their infection.
Our research explores disease-causing pathogens, host immune responses to infection, immunity, immune regulation, mucosal vaccine adjuvants and vaccine development.
We study a wide variety of viruses, including papillomaviruses, HIV and HCMV. We aim to understand and prevent viral infection and to develop antiviral therapies.
Twenty-nine doctoral, 36 master’s and 154 baccalaureate candidates were eligible to receive degrees in biomedical science fields during the May commencement ceremony.
