Medical Microbiology and Immunology Master's Degree Highlights

Full financial support. Medical microbiology and immunology graduate students are fully supported by a graduate research stipend. This allows students to focus exclusively on their research projects. Doctoral students receive full-tuition scholarships, as well. 

Teaching opportunities are available for students interested in careers in education.  

Collaborative research. Our faculty and students work with infectious disease and immunology experts on regional, state, national and international research projects.  

Communication skills. The [Toledo] Blade newspaper publishes monthly articles by our biomedical science graduate students. Through this partnership, our students learn to communicate about their research in terms the public can understand, which is an important skill for careers in science. After their stories were published, some students were asked to speak to veteran and patient groups.  

Our students also present their research at local, regional, national and international conferences. All students are mentored and encouraged to publish their research results in peer-reviewed, scientific journals. 

Active student groups. Network and learn. Most of our grad students participate in The University of Toledo Graduate Student Association and the Council of Biomedical Graduate Students, which holds an annual graduate research forum.
