The Program in Microbiology and Immunology (PMI) is an innovative program in graduate education that is administered through the School of Medicine of the University of Pittsburgh. The program aims to train highly motivated PhD students as self-reliant scholars in an environment where they have ready access to the breadth of expertise, approaches, and sub-disciplines.

Students in this program will gain a broad knowledge of diverse fields within microbiology and immunology which is supplemented by seminars, journal clubs, and laboratory rotations. The program rapidly immerses students into a research environment and mentors them to become independent and creative scientists.
