Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and predicting the status of the pandemic in January and February of 2022, if necessary, interviews may be altered to include both virtual and on-site activities.

After initial committee review of complete applications, select applicants will be contacted by email and invited for an on-campus interview. The University of Iowa Interdisciplinary Program in Immunology will coordinate travel to and from The University of Iowa campus. While on campus interviewees will meet with current students, faculty, participate in social events, and visit research buildings on campus. After review of all applicant interviews, the committee will make offers of admissions. The University of Iowa abides by the Council of Graduate Schools April 15 Resolution.
