Our research in this theme is delivered through the Institute of Microbiology and Infection (IMI) which was established in 2012 as a cross-college initiative bringing together research groups from across campus.
Mainly located in the School of Biosciences, research within the Institute is diverse, encompassing fundamental science of model organisms to the biochemical and biophysical analysis of microbial components to transnational research on key pathogens of medical and veterinary importance.
