This is a list of faculty that are part of the Immunology, Microbiology, and Immunology PhD program. Each faculty member's name and research interest description are displayed below. Links to each faculty member's research profile, e-mail, and lab website are also displayed.
The buttons below can be used to display faculty based on the curriculum track they focus on. (Microbiology, Immunology, and Virology.) By clicking a button, faculty members who focus on that field will be hidden. Click the same button, to unhide those faculty members. Click the "All Faculty Button" at any time to display all of the department's faculty.
