Today Microbiology and Immunology is a dynamic and exciting collection of disciplines. UNC Microbiology and Immunology conducts research and provides training in forefront areas of prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular and cellular biology, molecular genetics, pathogenesis, bacteriology, virology and immunology, as well as in broad multi-disciplinary areas such as host-pathogen interactions, macromolecular structure, the nature of protein/protein and protein/nucleic acid interactions, and mechanisms that control gene expression. Besides offering a comprehensive set of courses and seminar/tutorials for graduate students, the department provides instruction in microbial pathogenesis to students enrolled in the School of Medicine and Dentistry, as well as undergraduate students who seek admission into degree programs offered in the School of Nursing and Pharmacy.
