The Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis seminar series is held weekly during the academic year. Speakers present current research on pathogenic bacteria, fungi, protozoa, helminths, or viruses, covering topics that include fundamental biological discovery, mechanisms of virulence, host: pathogen interactions, and host immunity to pathogens.
