As a more specialized research-focused department, MMI does not have a full undergraduate training program. However, since 2003 MMI and the Dept. of Biological Sciences have created the Immunity & Infection (IMIN) program that offers a curriculum focused on infectious diseases viewed from both the pathogen and host immune system perspectives.
An important bridge between undergrad and graduate studies is formed by the summer student and 498/499 project programs that typically offer the first opportunity to participate in real research projects. This is crucial to experience the thrill of research at the bench, hone your experimental and data analysis skills, and establish contacts with faculty members that can help you in landing future positions or fellowship applications.
