Encompassing the disciplines of molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology and genetics, immunology sits at the intersection of these important basic sciences with clinical medicine.

During the years of rapid growth of the immunology community at Iowa, we have succeeded in attracting excellent scientists who are interactive and dedicated to training students and post-doctoral fellows in their favorite discipline. The program faculty now includes 30 independent immunology investigators at the medical college, all of whom are available for research consultation.

A recently reorganized core immunology curriculum plus strong electives in related disciplines encourage creative thinking. Core facilities make the latest technologies available to all investigators. Numerous journal clubs and discussion groups complement an outstanding weekly seminar program featuring both Iowa faculty and prominent immunologists from around the world.

The University of Iowa Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Immunology would welcome the opportunity to help you achieve a Ph.D. degree in immunology and realize your career goals.
