Introduction

This program provides a stimulating environment for our students who will play a leadership role in academic, government, and industrial research and in international health organizations. Advances in molecular and cell biology and genetics have opened new approaches to the study of basic and applied aspects of infectious disease and host defense. We are applying these approaches to studies of microbial pathogenesis, immune cell function, inflammation, receptor signaling, prokaryotic and eukaryotic gene regulation, genetic manipulation of cell functions, tumor immunology and immunotherapy, and vaccine development. Techniques including functional genomics, gene delivery, and derivation of transgenic animals are being developed and utilized to address specific questions. Our program provides interactive, multifaceted education and research training, and as a result, our graduates receive a comprehensive education in molecular and cell biology, microbiology, and immunology and in-depth training in their chosen area of research.
