Microbiology PhD Training Program Curriculum
In addition to lab rotations and research, our Microbiology PhD Training Program curriculum includes coursework and seminars.
Core and elective courses emphasize the molecular aspects of microbial pathogenesis.
In addition to courses taken by all Vilcek Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences PhD students, microbiology training program candidates often take the following:
Fundamentals in Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis
Introduction to Immunology
Topics in Molecular Biology
Students may also find the following courses useful:
Molecular Mechanisms in Biology
Our seminars provide opportunities to learn about your colleagues’ work, present your own work, and receive feedback from faculty.
Microbiology Works in Progress Series
In the weekly Microbiology Works in Progress Series, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows present their current research and answer questions from the audience. Faculty members meet with the speakers after each talk to provide feedback on presentation style.
Microbiology Seminar Series
The Microbiology Seminar Series invites renowned scientists from across the country and around the world to present their research and meet with faculty and trainees.
