Immunology and Microbiology M.S./Ph.D. Programs

The BMI department offers programs that lead to Masters of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)  degrees in Immunology & Microbiology. Our students develop competencies in Immunology, Microbiology, and Virology.  Areas of research specialization include mucosal immunity, autoimmunity, immunopathology, bacterial physiology, bacterial genetics, molecular mechanisms of bacterial and viral pathogenesis, molecular virology, and virus-host interactions.  In addition to research opportunities in departmental laboratories, research training opportunities are also available in laboratories of affiliated faculty in other departments and programs in the School of Medicine, and at the nearby Henry Ford Health System and Karmanos Cancer Institute.
