I am interested in immune responses to pathogens. Is it possible to arrange this kind of study?
Most definitely; our programs are very flexible. You can take combined coursework in Microbiology and Immunology themes and several of our mentors are experts in this area.

Can I apply to more than one theme?
Yes, once you start the application process you should see a selection for Multiple Theme choices.  Remember though, the themes are not rigid structures (see previous question) and you can take courses, journal clubs, etc. that interest you and that you and your mentor feel are important for your research. Since there is a common GBS admissions committee, applying to more than one theme does not increase your chances of being accepted.
