The Department of Microbiology and Immunology is a basic science, research-oriented unit within the University of Miami School of Medicine. The department consists of 42 faculty members, approximately 45 postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, and a technical staff of 45. Departmental research efforts are supported by a number of core units including flow cytometry, transgenic/knockout, sequencing, imaging, and stem cell/hematopoiesis facilities. In addition to studying basic microbiological and immunological questions, the department also directs the Gene Transfer Immunotherapy Program together with physicians from the Division of Hematology and Oncology and maintains close ties with the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Diabetes Research Institute through collaborative projects.
