Welcome—thank you for your interest in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology.
The Department is committed to providing outstanding training toward understanding infectious disease processes at all levels, from the population through organismal, tissue, cellular and molecular aspects of public health biology.
Our academic programs seek to equip graduate and postgraduate students with the diverse disciplinary concepts and methodological tools to address critical biological issues underlying a broad range of infectious and immunologic diseases of public health importance.
Policy on COVID-19 and Submission of Pass/Fail Grades
MMI and Johns Hopkins appreciate that many educational institutions have altered their grading policies in response to the SARS-Cov2 pandemic. We respect the decisions of these institutions and of individual students as we all navigate this unprecedented situation. Thus, an applicant to any of the MMI graduate training programs for 2021 will not be penalized in the admissions process for pass/fail grading of any courses taken in the March 2020-May/June 2020 time frame if the applicant’s undergraduate or graduate institution has prescribed pass/fail grading or if the student elected pass/fail grading for their coursework. Should an institution extend pass/fail grading to include courses in the beginning of the 2020/2021 academic year this policy will also apply to those courses.
We look forward to working with you as you plan the next step in your academic and professional life.
Please contact Gail O'Connor, our Academic Program Administrator, with any questions about our degree programs.
