Molecular Genetics & Microbiology Educational Activities

Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (BSGP)

MGM faculty participate in all aspects of the BSGP, including as faculty mentors, as participants in the BSGP curriculum, and as members of the BSGP steering committee.  Are you interested in graduate work in an MGM laboratory?  See the BSGP website for application information.

Medical Education

The Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology plays an important role in Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) at the University of New Mexico Medical School.  MGM is responsible for coordinating the Microbiology and Immunology block in Phase I of the UME curriculum.  MGM faculty give the majority of lectures in this course, they serve as tutors during problem-based learning sessions, and they facilitate team-based learning sessions. 

Departmental Works-in-Progress Seminar Series

MGM has a monthly works-in-progress (WIP) seminar series in which students and post-docs from the department can present their research in a lively, supportive, and interactive environment.  The WIP is held at 3pm on Monday during the academic year (except the first Monday of each month).

Immunology/Virology Journal Club

MGM faculty, post-docs, and students participate in weekly Immunology and Virology Journal Clubs during the academic year.  Interested?  Contact Dr. Paulus Mrass (Immunology) or Dr. Michelle Ozbun (Virology) for more details.
