Welcome to the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. We are a product of the July 2014 merger of the former Department of Microbiology in the School of Medicine and the Integrated Department of Immunology, a joint venture of the School of Medicine and National Jewish Health. With the merger of the departments come unique opportunities to realize synergy between the outstanding preexisting research programs in immunology focused primarily on aspects of adaptive immunity, and microbiology focused primarily on microbial pathogenesis. Areas of immediate program growth will include innate immunity and its impact on adaptive immune function, host-pathogen interactions, and the role of the microbiome on immune function and outcomes of infection.
Our faculty is engaged in graduate and medical education in both microbiology and immunology, as well as in robust postdoctoral training programs, all supported by institutional NIH training grants.
We invite you to explore our web-site to learn more about our people, research and educational programs. We hope you will visit our web-site often to follow our progress in this new venture.
