Immunology, Microbiology, and Virology Ph.D. Program
Students working in the Dewhurst Lab
The Immunology, Microbiology, and Virology (IMV) Program is designed for students interested in obtaining a Ph.D. in Microbiology & Immunology. As such, the program represents a group of faculty that may mentor a student pursuing thesis research toward the Microbiology & Immunology Ph.D. Students interested in a Ph.D. in Microbiology & Immunology should apply to the IMV Program for admission to graduate studies at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
We offer in-depth coursework and diverse research opportunities that focus on immunology, microbiology and virology.
The flexibility of our training program allows students to train in a number of exciting research areas including: cancer, autoimmune disease, respiratory pathogens and often allows students to develop highly effective interdisciplinary collaborations, resulting in cutting edge thesis projects.
