Our Microbiology (MIC) concentration is focused on studying viruses such as influenza, hepatitis C, dengue, West Nile, HIV, Ebola, Marburg, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, cytomegalovirus, and others. We also investigate the host responses to these viruses and other pathogens.

MIC is a multidisciplinary training area (MTA) in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. It is ideal for those who would like to obtain a graduate degree in the field of virology and virus-host interactions. If you are a postdoctoral fellow, you are also welcome to apply to this concentration.
