Microbiology and Immunology
Disciplines Within Microbiology and Immunology
Graduate degrees can be pursued in the areas of Virology, Bacteriology, Microbial Pathogenesis, Microbial Genetics, Molecular Genetics, Cancer Biology, and Cellular and Molecular Immunology. Graduate students are expected to acquire a conceptual understanding of the disciplines in microbiology and immunology and an in depth knowledge of their particular area of specialization. Notwithstanding this, the existence of specified streams in Cellular and Molecular Immunology, Virology, Bacteriology, Microbial Pathogenesis and Molecular Genetics in the Department may allow well-qualified students, with at least minimal training in Microbiology and Immunology, but a strong background in the appropriate subject area, to concentrate their studies.
