Current PhD Students
Current UW Immunology PhD students form a close-knit community who actively interact and socialize together. As a group, current UW Immunology PhD students gather socially at the department retreat and recruitment events. They are supportive of each others’ work as evidenced by their regular strong attendance at weekly student research presentations and dissertation defenses. It is common to find group of students gathered throughout the department having lunch time or coffee break discussions amongst each other. This community environment is one of the most valued attributes to our graduate program.
