The Department of Microbiology and Immunology at UNC - Chapel Hill represents a dynamic and exciting blend of disciplines and technology. Research and training are largely focused in the areas of immunology, virology, and microbial pathogenesis, but the questions and strategies are broadly based in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics and genomics. 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.
