Marcia Hobbs, PhD, is professor of medicine and microbiology and immunology at the UNC School of Medicine.  Her laboratory occupies an unusual niche in the department of medicine: it is a hybrid clinical and research lab. It comprises 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 on the UNC campus and with outside collaborators. In addition to the core facilities, her lab maintains research programs on the molecular epidemiology of Trichomonas vaginalis infection and the pathogenesis of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.

In 2010, Dr. Hobbs was awarded the Freshman Basic Science Teaching Award for the medical school.
