The Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology serves our community, state, nation, and the world by applying the tools of our disciplines to improving health and wellness for all members of our society, including historically underserved populations.
We are home to students and faculty engaged in the study of areas of modern biomedical science that are fundamental to understanding biological systems relevant to human health. The department was formed in January 2017 by a merger of the long-standing Departments of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Immunology & Microbiology.
We provide high quality biomedical science education and opportunities to perform pioneering research. This enables our diverse student body of college undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars to develop into scientific leaders in the international biomedical arena.
