Microbiology, Infection & Immunity

To understand diverse microorganisms, their pathogenesis and resultant immune responses, research in MCB probes microbial physiology, the composition and function of microbiomes, innate and adaptive immunity, and translational strategies to predict infection epidemics, design better therapies and reengineer host and microbe for improved health and industry.
