The Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems (MaPS) was founded in 2010, and is the product of a merger between two departments, one focused on microbiology, genetics, and immunology, and the other focused on physiology. Capitalizing on the strength of the respective scientific research programs, the resulting department has strong and synergistic expertise in bacterial and viral pathogenesis, immunology, signal transduction, and fundamental cellular physiology. Current departmental research targets include viral and bacterial pathogens affecting the nervous, respiratory, and digestive systems. The mission of the new department is to address important biological questions broadly relevant to infectious disease and encompassing multiple levels of biological organization, including an understanding of pathogen effects on their target organ systems. This collection showcases the journal articles and other publications and presentations written by faculty and researchers of the Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems. See earlier collections for selected Physiology and Molecular Genetics and Microbiology publications published before the departmental merger.
