Graduate Program

The UW Immunology Ph.D. program provides comprehensive, rigorous training in the discipline of immunology, emphasizing the connections between the immune system and other biological systems in health and disease.

The UW Immunology graduate program provides the opportunity to pursue an understanding of immune responses from the cellular, molecular and systems biology perspective, a key starting point for careers in academia, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical research programs.

UW Immunology faculty provide a high-quality educational experience for students through teaching and hands-on research.  One-on-one faculty mentorship during a student’s time in the department is a key component to the success of our program.  This foundation enables our students to make fundamental discoveries, and serves as a starting point for careers in academic and industrial research programs.
