MMI Statement in Support of International Students and Researchers

On Friday, February 10, 2017, a quorum of Medical Microbiology & Immunology Department Faculty members voted unanimously in support of the following statement:

The Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology’s mission is to provide comprehensive scientific instruction to students, conduct novel and meaningful research, and offer consultation in microbiology and immunology as they relate to human disease.  Our progress toward these goals would not be possible without the expertise and diversity of our visiting international students and researchers.  Therefore, the Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology stands in opposition to the recent executive order on immigration and any further orders that might impede the vital contributions of our international scholars.
