The Microbiology and Immunology Department at McGill University offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of M.Sc. and Ph.D..


About this Program

Each Microbiology and Immunology program offered by McGill University is tailored to fit the needs and backgrounds of individual students. The graduate program is designed to offer students state-of-the-art training, concentrating on four key areas of research:

  • cellular and molecular immunology;
  • microbial physiology and genetics;
  • molecular biology of viruses;
  • medical microbiology.

Basic research discoveries in microbiology may lead to improved drug design and vaccine development to treat and prevent diseases. The Department has many notable facilities and resources, including a cell sorter, ultra centrifuges, confocal microscope, real-time PCR facilities, cryostat for immunocytochemistry, and facilities for radio-isotope studies and infectious diseases. We foster close ties with McGill’s teaching hospitals and research centres to promote multidisciplinary research.
