The Department of Microbiology and Immunology currently consists of dedicated faculty, research staff and Ph.D. candidates. The department has recently undergone expansion by adding new faculty with a strong research focus on microbial pathogenesis. The department is housed in the Basic Science Building in 12,500 sq ft of space. Faculty funding for support of research is about $3.9 M. The Department is well equipped for modern molecular microbiology and immunology research including an Applied Biosystems 7900 HT Real-time PCR system (Taqman), a Zeiss Axiovert 200 motorized microscope for Brightfield, phase contrast, DIC and fluorescence microscopy, a GenePix 4000B microarray scanner, bioinformatics software for microarray analysis and a newly constructed Biosafety level-3 laboratory.

The Department maintains strong academic and research ties to clinical departments, particularly Medicine and Pediatrics.

The Department of Microbiology and Immunology offers Ph.D. and M.S. degrees and there are also opportunities for post doctoral training.
