About the Microbiology Graduate Group

This interdisciplinary group consists of over 70 faculty members from a variety of academic departments whom have come together for the purpose of sponsoring a Doctor of Philosophy degree program in Microbiology. The major benefit to this organization is that it promotes collaborations unhampered by the traditional barriers of colleges, schools, or departments. Equally important, graduate students are offered great flexibility and breadth in identifying research problems and faculty with mutual interests. Finally, since all faculty members at UC Davis are directly affiliated with departments, the graduate students in our group have an additional opportunity to establish departmental affiliations within the graduate group.
