The Department of Immunobiology is one of the five basic science departments and one of the 18 departments of the University of Arizona College of Medicine, on the Northeast side of the University of Arizona Campus in Tucson, AZ. The Department engages in medical and graduate student teaching, is part of the undergraduate research experience via undergraduate research programs such as UBRP (https://ubrp.arizona.edu/), performs research on all aspects of host:microbe interaction, immune system function and dysfunction and microbial pathogenesis.
The core mission of the Department of Immunobiology (IMB), consistent with the missions of the College of Medicine and the University of Arizona, is to perform cutting edge research and to disseminate its results through teaching of new health professionals, scientists and the public. Our research goals are to better understand the role of the immune system in health and disease with the focus on pathogens. The department trains and educates physicians, scientists and students in all areas of immunobiology and microbiology.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”

The Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine is one of the five basic science departments of the University of Arizona College of Medicine located on the Northeast side of the University of Arizona Campus in Tucson, AZ. The mission of the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (CMM) is to provide pre- and post-doctoral, medical and graduate education in an interdisplinary environment through research activities to advance knowledge of biological structure as related to function and disease from the molecular level to the whole organism.
CMM faculty run active research programs in modern molecular and cellular biology which include areas of developmental biology, neuroscience, parasitology, immunology, cancer biology, and cellular structure and function. Our graduate program attracts outstanding students from all parts of the US and the world. Graduate students from the interdisciplinary programs of cancer biology, genetics, molecular & cellular biology and biochemistry, neuroscience, and physiological sciences also receive training in CMM faculty laboratories.
