Molecular Pathology & Immunology
The graduate program in Molecular Pathology and Immunology in the Department of Pathology, Microbiology & Immunology provides training in the basic principles underlying human disease, inflammation, and immunology. Students undertake research experiences to apply this knowledge to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of tissue damage and repair and the role of the immune system in diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and response to infection. Graduate study in this area offers students the opportunity to integrate principles of immunology, molecular genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry into research relevant to improving the quality of life through the discovery of new avenues to therapies. The many areas of active investigation in the Molecular Pathology and Immunology training program provide students with a diverse choice of subjects for dissertation research and fields of training for future careers as independent, biomedical research scientists.
