Course Work


The CMIB has developed educational initiatives through the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (BSGP) and plays a leadership role in the Microbial Pathogenesis (Drs. John Gunn & Jacob Yount, liaisons) and Immunology (Dr. Stephanie Seveau, liaison) emphasis areas in the BSGP. Because the CMIB is so broad, many graduate programs are represented by our faculty in addition to BSGP such as Microbiology, Veterinary Biosciences, Food Science and Technology, and the Ohio State Biochemistry Program.  Students and faculty should feel free to contact Drs. Gunn, Yount, or Seveau to suggest new classes or changes to the curriculum/emphasis areas.
