For prospective PhD and MD/PhD students interested in pneumonia biology, several training opportunities are available at BU.

The Immunology Training Program, the Training Program in Pathogenesis and Host Pathogen Interactions, and the Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine each lead to the PhD degree while providing training relevant to pneumonia biology. They are interdepartmental training programs located on the Medical Campus.

The Division of Graduate Medical Sciences confers PhD and other graduate degrees through 15 different basic science departments.

The MD/PhD program is one of the largest programs leading to these joint degrees in the U.S.

For current BU undergraduates, opportunities are available through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) for doing research in the lab for academic credit such as a senior thesis.

For all of the above-described student opportunities, you may contact us for more information.
