  • Graduate, medical, dental, veterinary, and advanced undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and visiting faculty work directly in the laboratories with the center faculty and have one-on-one mentoring and training.
  • Outside speakers present seminars on cutting-edge research.
  • Center faculty participate in teaching courses in molecular microbiology and infectious diseases.
  • The center is working to develop continuing education for clinicians already in practice.
