Microbiology PhD Program Suggestion in Biology Posted September 17, 2018 On 9/12/2018 at 7:31 AM, strugglebus2k17 said: I'm a first year PhD student in a microbiology/immunology department. Some great Microbiology programs in the united states that you might consider are UNC Chappel Hill, Scripps, Baylor College of Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, UPenn, UMich, Tulane, University of Washington, Washington University in St. Louis. University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) is a great microbiology school for tropical/emerging microbiology. Harvard is a top school for Virology. Thank you for the suggestions. So right now, where do you learn?
