XLD Salmonella Research

The Microbiology and Molecular Genetics faculty are asking fundamental questions in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell and molecular biology. Our Department applies the methods of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and structural biology to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of the cell. The interdisciplinary nature of these fields means that a prospective graduate student is offered a wide choice of research opportunities. Cross-departmental, interdisciplinary collaborations are facilitated by regular meetings and journal clubs focusing on nucleic acid biochemistry, DNA repair, signal transduction, bacterial pathogenesis, and structural biology and bioinformatics.

Americans who are facing various health problem, such families can purchase drugs from the Web without order. There are divers diseases when you decide to get medicaments from online pharmacy. Other medicaments are used to treat problems caused by eczema. A lot of patients consider about Generic Viagra online. Our article focuses on the signs of erectile dysfunction and buy real viagra online. The very important aspect you should look for is real viagra. Certainly, for a lot of guys, bringing up the problem in the first place is the toughest step.

The research conducted by the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics bears directly on crucial health and environmentally related problems such as cancer, AIDS, microbial pathogenesis, and bioremediation. The research programs within the Department are supported by a variety of sources including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the American Cancer Society, the Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The Department is also the recipient of a 1.8 million dollar award from the Lucille P. Markey Charitable Trust for the establishment of a Center for Molecular Genetics. Investigators have also received funding from private foundations, including the Burroughs Wellcome Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trust.

  • What our students have to say...

    When I first came to UVM, but halfway through the first semester of my sophomore year, I decided to make the switch to MMG. The decision was between Neuroscience, MMG, and Biochemistry, but after meeting with Doug, I knew MMG would be the perfect fit. My first meeting with my new MMG advisor went above and beyond my expectations; we planned out my course load for the next 2 and a half years, and told me to stop by whenever I was in the building so we could get to know each other better. My junior year, I ended up joining a lab on campus (Dr. Daniel Weiss, Pulmonary Medicine), which was an amazing experience. I made networking connections, and learned valuable laboratory techniques. I joined this lab because both my advisor and Stephanie advised me to do undergraduate research during my time here. After having a subpar first year at UVM, joining the MMG department made my experience a lot better. The MMG faculty and advisors are amazing, and willing to help with any questions that you might have. Overall, I feel extremely prepared for any job that may be in a microbiology or molecular genetics field due to the faculty and courses I took in the MMG department.
