Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology
Mission Statement for Baltimore
The Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology pursues research that aims to advance the understanding of the biology of disease and to use knowledge to solve public health problems. The Department seeks to apply this knowledge in Baltimore and to encourage Baltimore students to pursue careers in related fields.
Students in the Department have volunteered in programs providing outreach, counseling, education and testing on HIV and Hepatitis C virus. These efforts have included efforts to link individuals who test positive with needed treatment resources in Baltimore.
MMI Baltimore Project: Engagement with Local High School and College Students
The departments of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will partner to expand involvement in the Medical Education Resources Initiative for Teens program by hosting Baltimore city students to work in our labs during the summer months.
