Education & Training

The field of immunology provides excellent opportunities for graduate training in the concepts and techniques of contemporary biomedical science. A faculty drawn from both basic science and clinical departments of the medical school offers research training opportunities in a wide range of topics, including:

  • Molecular immunology
  • Cellular immunology
  • Transplantation
  • Immunogenetics
  • Immunology of infectious diseases
  • Tumor immunology
  • Clinical immunology

Students receive a broad-based education in the strategies and techniques of immunological research that prepares them well for a wide spectrum of career opportunities.

Educational Opportunities

The Excellence in Immunology Lecture Series, held weekly on campus, exposes students and faculty to a wide variety of topics in the field of immunology.

Participation in selected journal clubs, seminars, and elective courses also provide an array of additional educational opportunities. Additionally, students present their research one to two times per year in a Works in Progress seminar.
