As a PhD candidate, you participate in hands-on work in all aspects of microbiology. These include microbiome biology; mechanisms of microbial and parasitic pathogenicity and host resistance to infectious agents; the molecular, cellular, and immunological phenomena associated with microbial colonization and infection; and the genetics of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbes.

Classwork emphasizes the molecular aspects of pathogenesis. Course subjects include the following:

  • bacterial pathogenesis
  • cell and molecular biology
  • immunology
  • macromolecular mechanisms
  • medical microbiology
  • parasitology
  • virology
