Immunology

Training future leaders in molecular and cellular immunology.

Our objective is to guide and prepare students for cutting-edge research in immunology while providing broad training to equip students for diverse career paths.

Students learn to think independently while pursuing individual research interests in a uniquely diverse and flexible program.

More than 54 faculty members from the schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA) provide graduate training in immunology by incorporating concepts of molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology and genetics into the curriculum.
