Department of Microbiology-Immunology faculty members participate in the education of the student populations at Northwestern University and Feinberg through classroom teaching and research training. The faculty teach microbiology, immunology, genetics, molecular biology, and tumor cell biology to medical and graduate students. Research training efforts are supported by several interdepartmental NIH training grants, which enable the training of both predoctoral and postdoctoral students. The faculty members of the Department of Microbiology-Immunology direct their own independent research programs and are responsible for supervising the research training of more than 45 postdoctoral fellows and 30 graduate students.
Additionally, the department hosts and sponsors various seminars and events that offer students and fellows access to outside speakers and provide presentation experience to future researchers.
