Welcome to the Department of Microbiology
and Immunology at the University of Nevada, Reno. We are a community
of 10 faculty, 30 senior scientists, postdoctoral fellows and graduate
students and 15 support staff who are actively engaged in innovative
research, discovery and education.
Research in the department focuses on immunology with
an emphasis on cancer biology and microbial pathogenesis with a particular
interest in emerging microbial infections and biodefense.
has an embedded culture that values training and education, be they
in a formal classroom setting for professional and graduate students,
at the laboratory bench, or one-on-one instruction and mentoring. This
is an exciting time in biomedical research. Immunology is paving the
way for treatment of diseases as diverse as cancer, Alzheimer’s
disease, autoimmunity and transplantation. New microbes are being discovered,
and we are finding new relationships between the microbial world and
an array of human diseases.
