Immunobiology (PHD) 
Program Description

The core mission of the Department of Immunobiology (IMB), consistent with the missions of the College of Medicine and the University of Arizona, is to perform cutting-edge research and to disseminate its results through teaching of new health professionals, scientists and the public. Our research goals are to better understand the role of the immune system in health and disease with the focus on pathogens. The department trains and educates physicians, scientists and students in all areas of immunobiology and microbiology.

 

*Please note: The Immunobiology program is no longer accepting applicants. We have merged with Cellular & Molecular Medicine to create the Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine (GPMM). We are one program with three academic tracks: Cell Biology, Immunobiology and Medical Biophysics. Any interested applicants to the Molecular Medicine PhD should visit the ABBS website for additional information.
