About the Program
Pathologic changes occurring as a result of infection or exposure to toxic agents are common in both animals and plants. At Cornell University, scientists studying the interplay between host and pathogen/toxin have been brought together in a multidepartmental program entitled Infection and Pathobiology.
The program spans the various disciplines involved and facilitates broader interactions between departments and graduate fields that share common interests in host-pathogen interactions.
