Division of Microbiology and Immunology
The Division of Microbiology and Immunology (M&I) in the University of Utah School of Medicine Department of Pathology was established in the early 1970s by past chairman Ernst Eichwald, MD. Dr. Eichwald, an internationally recognized clinician/scientist who recruited a group of faculty to Utah with shared interests in better understanding the immunological mechanisms underlying graft infection and transplantation tolerance. Shortly after its creation, the division was granted graduate degree-granting status from the state of Utah, and continues today to provide high quality education and research experiences to qualified students seeking a PhD or master’s degree in microbiology and immunology. The Division of M&I is under the direction of the Division Head Brian Evavold, PhD.
