The Immunology Graduate Theme would like to welcome its entering Class of 2013!
 


The Immunology Graduate Theme is a part of the UAB Graduate Biomedical Sciences Program.  We are an interdisciplinary program emphasizing the study of multiple aspects of the immune system, from basic molecular mechanisms to whole animal studies and human translational research. 

The remarkable breadth of our program can be seen in the primary departments of the almost fifty theme faculty members. Faculty from the Departments of Microbiology, Cell, Developmental and Integrative Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, Genetics, Biology, Pathology, Medicine, Pediatrics, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology, Surgery, Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and Dentistry are involved in internationally recognized research and in the training of PhD-level graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. 

Currently, forty-five students are in training in the laboratories of our immunology faculty.  Primary areas of research include: Allergy, Autoimmunity, Cancer Immunology, Clinical/Translational, Developmental Immunology, Host Defense, Immunodeficiency, Immunogenetics, Inflammation, Mucosal and Ocular Immunology, Neuroimmunology, Structural Immunology, and Transplantation Immunology. Students graduating from the Immunology Graduate Theme will be well-versed in modern immunology and have the option to pursue diverse career pathways
