Microbiology, Immunity, and Inflammation (MII)
Microbiology, Immunity and Inflammation Research Concentration Leadership:
The training concentration in Microbiology, Immunity, and Inflammation involves faculty members from a number of departments in several colleges, and research spanning the breadth of microbiology (including virology, bacteriology, and mycology), issues of host – pathogen interactions, inflammation and other aspects of innate and adaptive immune responsiveness (including allergy and autoimmunity). Research within this concentration, broadly covering fundamental and clinically-relevant issues of pathogenesis and homeostasis, use a diversity of cutting-edge approaches to gain molecular and mechanistic insight. The overarching goal of this training program is to facilitate the development of students as rigorous, critical, and independent scientists in a robust, interactive, and closely-mentored scientific environment.
