In an era of superbugs, bioterrorism, and pandemics, the need for new technologies to fight a host of rapidly evolving and potentially deadly diseases has never been greater.
The Pathogen and Microbiome Institute (PMI) represents a key investment in the technologies of the future. PMI greatly expands NAU’s capabilities to conduct both basic and translational research in the following areas:
• Pathogen microbiology
• Biological Select Agents or Toxins (BSAT)
• Hospital-acquired infections
• The role of the microbiome in chronic healthcare challenges
PMI is committed to undergraduate and graduate student research training in an internationally-recognized world-class facility. There are over 100 faculty, full time staff, graduate and undergraduate students currently working in the Institute with additional researchers closely associated with PMI on the NAU campus.
