Studying Microbiology in Canada

Dalhousie University

Department Microbiology & Immunology

Overview The Department of Microbiology and Immunology, housed in the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University, has a long-standing reputation for academic excellence and for equipping its students to excel in today's highly competitive field of biological research. In an era of departmental reductions, the Department has been expanding its faculty base and establishing innovative programs through cross appointments in the clinical Departments of Surgery, Dentistry, Pediatrics and Medicine. These expansions have opened up new areas of research in transplantation immunology, oral microbiology, and infectious diseases to complement established programs in immunology, cell and molecular biology, microbial genetics, virology, and bacterial pathogenesis.

The Microbiology and Immunology Department is very active in the following areas of research:

- Bacteriology & Microbial Pathogenesis
- Immunology
- Microbial & Molecular Genetics
- Virology

Research Facilities The majority of full time faculty members appointed in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology are based at the Sir Charles Tupper Medical Building. However, members of the Department, mainly joint and cross appointees, occupy space in other research facilites, and(or) are members of other Centres like:
- Atlantic Research Data Centre (ARDC)
- Dalhousie Infectious Disease Research Alliance (DIDRA)
- Aquatron
- Canadian Institute of Fisheries Technology (CIFT)
- Trace Analysis Research Centre (TARC)
- IWK Health Centre
- QEII Health Sciences Centre
