O que eu aprenderei?

The Department of Medical Microbiology offers programs of study leading to M.Sc ,Pre-Master and Ph.D degrees with research and academic experience suitable for a career in Basic Microbiology or Infectious Diseases.

Both program streams involve coursework and original research. The coursework requirement is determined on an individual basis, but a minimum of 12 credit hours are required for the M.Sc. Half (six) of these credit hours are earned in Microbial Pathogenicity, the department’s only required course. The student and advisor arrange the other six credit hours.

The coursework requirement for the Ph.D. degree is a minimum of six credit hours beyond the M.Sc. requirement. In addition, all students are expected to participate in a seminar program that is composed of journal clubs and research seminars presented by students, the faculty, and visiting scientists. Each graduate program is arranged by, and overseen by, the major professor and an advisory committee. Research normally culminates in the generation and presentation of a Thesis, and two publications are expected from Ph.D. projects.

Scientific interests of the faculty are broad, and research projects range from the basic understanding of gene regulation and molecular basis of cellular functions to the development of vaccines and diagnostics for human health and veterinary diseases. The Department has active research programs in:

  • Cell and molecular biology
  • Immunology
  • Virology
  • Bacterial genetics
  • Microbial pathogenicity
  • Antimicrobial resistance
  • Clinical microbiology

Many research projects are oriented to human diseases and many are carried out in collaboration with physicians who have access to patients.

The Ph.D. option consists of coursework and a substantial research component.
