Graduate Study. The Graduate Group in Integrative Pathobiology offers the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees for graduate study in disciplines concerned with disease processes. The group's focus is the study of the causes and nature of disease processes in animals and humans, with major emphasis on the mechanisms responsible for the development of diseases at the level of organ systems, the cell, or subcellular mechanisms. The group brings a wide array of scientific knowledge to this study, so that students with divergent interests can be accommodated in programs designed for individual needs. Beyond core courses selected from disciplines such as anatomy, bacteriology, genetics, immunology, parasitology, pathology, physiology, and virology, course programs are intentionally flexible.

Preparation. This program is primarily for students who have a professional medical degree; e.g., D.V.M., M.D., D.D.S. Students without a professional degree will be considered if they have an especially strong background in basic biomedical sciences.

Graduate Adviser. Jeffrey Stott (Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology)
