Microbiology is a cutting-edge, societally important, well-funded and diverse discipline that studies organisms unseen by the naked eye.  These viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoans and nematodes are vital components of our environment, and of our bodies.  Reflecting this diversity of microorganismal types, habitats, and applied goals, microbiologists work all across the UA campus, and this website provides a UNIFIED PORTAL to their research.

In addition, there is information about the University of Arizona's educational opportunities in microbiology from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences undergraduate and graduate Microbiology degree programs.
