MIC Graduate Studies

The Microbiology, Immunology, and Cancer Biology (MIC) Department is the home department for almost 60 Ph.D. candidates and MSTP Biomedical Sciences (BIMS) graduate students. Our graduate students study under internationally-recognized scientists in the areas of immunology, cancer biology, virology, bacteriology, infectious diseases, biodefense. The diversity of our Department ensures that students in MIC are offered diverse, interdisciplinary training throughout their graduate career.  The wide variety of choices in laboratories and coursework, coupled with flexible departmental requirements, enables each student to design a custom-tailored training program that culminates in the awarding of the Ph.D. degree.
