Department of Microbiology

We conduct research and offer training programs in microbiology and immunology.

The Department of Microbiology at NYU Langone Health brings together a variety of biomedical researchers united by the common goal of understanding the complex relationship between viral, bacterial, or parasitic pathogens and the human host. Ongoing research also focuses on several important areas of biomedical science, including the molecular basis of disease, cancer biology, and immunology.

Our research facilities include individual and shared laboratory spaces that make it easier for investigators to work with researchers in other departments and institutes.
