Our Mission

We are proud to support the mission of the UNC School of Medicine, and grateful to serve the people of North Carolina.

The three intertwined missions of the Department of Microbiology & Immunology are to:
Conduct research that significantly advances the science of microbiology and immunology, broadly defined and with emphasis on topics that could contribute to improved human health. Educate diverse graduate, professional, and pre-professional students as well as postdoctoral scholars in the aspects of microbiology and immunology appropriate for their careers; and serve the people of North Carolina and the United States, whose support enables our research and teaching missions. As well as the international community of scholars, who provide the framework in which to conduct high-quality peer-reviewed microbiology and immunology research.
