Graduate Research in Microbes and Infectious Diseases

Interested in Graduate Research in Microbes and Infectious Diseases?

Check out the Ph.D. in Biology or the Ph.D. in Global Infectious Diseases at Georgetown University:

Research at Georgetown University in microbes and infectious diseases spans:
  • Mosquito vectors of viral diseases [Armbruster Lab]
  • Network modeling for viral disease ecology and epidemiology [Bansal Lab]
  • Integrated regulation of metabolism and pathogenesis in Staphylococcus aureus [Brinsmade Lab]
  • Molecular and Cell biology of Giardia lamblia [Elmendorf Lab]
  • Nutrient sensing and fungal responses [Rolfes Lab]
  • Cell wall biosynthesis in Candida glabrata [Rosenwald Lab]
  • Interactions between Giardia lamblia and its host [Singer Lab]

Graduate students at Georgetown University pursue research in diverse areas of the biological sciences, ranging from molecular and cellular biology to ecological genetics and behavior. Faculty members that specialize in these areas emphasize collaborative research projects within and outside of Biology, and this affords graduate students the opportunity to pursue research questions that are truly interdisciplinary in nature. This broad, interdisciplinary approach to research enables students to pursue novel questions and conduct cutting-edge research.

Faculty members in the Department of Biology place a strong emphasis on working individually with graduate students to ensure that they not only possess all of the necessary skills for successful careers upon degree completion, but that they also find positions in areas that interest them. Our graduates have obtained jobs in academia, government, teaching, private industry, and public policy.

The Biology Department at Georgetown University is housed within Regents Hall, a new, state-of-the-art science building. Georgetown University is situated in the picturesque and historic Georgetown region of Washington D.C. Its location also provides unique opportunities to interact with scientists who work in diverse institutions around Washington DC, including the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Smithsonian Institution.
