The Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Diseases (IIID) concentration focuses study on specific aspects of fungal, bacterial and/or viral infections as well as studies of infection-derived diseases and their outcomes. Research in this concentration examines microbial mechanisms of action, pathophysiology of infections, immunobiology, T-cell regulation, and the innate immune system. Students also learn translational aspects of applying research to human diseases. Students graduating with the Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Diseases concentration will be highly competitive for careers at academic institutions, in industries involved in biomedical research, and at government agencies conducting, regulating, or funding biomedical research.
