Graduate Group in Immunology

Welcome to the UC Davis Graduate Group in Immunology website!

Our Immunology Graduate Program emphasizes a flexible PhD program in an exciting field of biology and medicine. We offer a strong curriculum that prepares students for engaging in interdisciplinary science. Participating faculty from several Schools, Colleges, Centers and Departments at UC Davis provide diverse research opportunities in applied immunology.

Areas of focus for our program include infection and immunity (including host response to bacteria, viruses and parasites), immune regulation, neuroimmunology, nutrition and immunity, autoimmunity, cancer therapy and immune mediators used for diagnosis and treatment. Ongoing research includes every organ system, many animal models and human studies, spanning a range of analysis from single molecules to whole organisms. This diversity of research offers our students the latitude to emphasize and develop skills and knowledge in those areas of immunology that are of most interest to them.
