Department of Microbiology & Immunology
Our department focuses on four areas of research and teaching excellence: host-pathogen interactions, immunology of infectious diseases and cancer, lymphocyte biology, and microbial pathogenesis. We participate in the training and education of students in the Masters and PhD Programs of the Jefferson College of Life Sciences, in the Jefferson College of Pharmacy, and in the MD and MD/PhD Program of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College. Through interactions with clinical departments, institutes, and centers at and outside the university, the department aims to translate its discoveries towards the development of novel therapies and diagnostics.
