Microbiology (PhD)

The Graduate Program in Microbiology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is a Ph.D. program that prepares students to contribute to an understanding of microbial species, including archaea, bacteria, fungi, helminths, protozoa, and viruses, and their positive and negative roles in the health of humans. Despite progress and breakthroughs in public health, vaccination, therapeutics, and antibiotics, there are many ongoing and emerging challenges in the prevention and treatment of infectious disease. As we continue to learn about the complex populations of organisms that surround us and colonize us, rigorous training of future young investigators in microbiology will continue to be essential to human health. The principle aim of the Graduate Program in Microbiology is to help produce the next generation of microbiologists to address unsolved and arising questions in basic and translational microbiology research.
