Microbiology and Immunology

About Microbiology and Immunology

The Division of Microbiology and Immunology (M&I) in the University of Utah School of Medicine Department of Pathology was established in the early 1970s by past chairman Ernst Eichwald, M.D. Dr. Eichwald, an internationally recognized clinician/scientist who recruited a group of faculty to Utah with shared interests in better understanding the immunological mechanisms underlying graft infection and transplantation tolerance. Shortly after its creation, the Division was granted graduate degree-granting status from the State of Utah, and continues today to provide high quality education and research experiences to qualified students seeking a Ph.D. or Masters degree in Microbiology and Immunology.
