Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Microbiology-Immunology


The research conducted in Microbiology-Immunology is pushing the frontiers of understanding microbe-host interactions. The strong interactions among faculty that investigate bacterial-host interactions, viral dynamics, and immunological mechanisms supports vigorous training programs and leading-edge research. Faculty have active collaborations beyond the department, including with the Lurie Cancer Center, with basic and clinical departments on the Chicago campus, and with complementary departments on the nearby Evanston campus. The department faculty are engaged in research at all training levels through direct interactions with students and through weekly journal clubs and seminars.  The faculty serve the scientific community through service on journal editorial boards, on NIH study sections, and on foundation advisory boards.
