As a department, we have two main goals: (1) exploring novel research and (2) sharing with students our fascination and knowledge of dynamic disciplines in microbiology, including bacteriology, epidemiology, fungal biology, immunology, molecular biology, parasitology, and virology. We work to achieve excellence in these areas by creating a student-centered environment that values diversity and encourages discovery, ingenuity, integrity, and collegiality.

Our Highlight Reel

The fall 2014 MICR 354 Scientific Writing students were challenged to capture the spirit of our department in 3-5 minute videos. Their stories were screened for all students, staff, and faculty at the first ever VMS Video Fest. All of the videos were a big hit, and you can view them here. The winning video, however, is this one, below, Getting Ahead with VMS by micro majors, Emma Kusick, Francis Landman, Kendra Dowdle, Danielle Pitzen, and Lee Wrona.
