Marcia Hobbs received her PhD from the University of North Carolina in 1993. She is a professor of medicine and microbiology immunology at UNC School of Medicine. Her laboratory occupies an unusual niche in the Department of Medicine as a hybrid clinical and research lab. She heads the Microbiology and Human Challenge Core Laboratories of the UNC Sexually Transmitted Diseases Cooperative Research Center (STD-CRC) providing support and assay development for numerous Infectious Disease research projects within the UNC-CH campus and with outside collaborators. In addition to the Core laboratory facilities, she helps maintain research programs on the molecular epidemiology of Trichomonas vaginalis infection and the pathogenesis of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
