Institute for Molecular Virology Training Program

The IMV Training Program (IMVTP) is supported by NIH grant T32 AI83196. The overarching research theme of the IMV training program is virus-host cell interactions, which encompasses 1) mechanisms of viral replication and restriction and 2) molecular pathogenesis.

IMVTP Fellows are expected to participate in all IMV activities, including the virology journal club, IMV Research-in-Progress, IMV Innovations in Virus Research Lecture Series, UMN-Mayo Distinguished Lectures in Virology & Gene Therapy, and the annual IMV Symposium.

Online resources that IMVTP Fellows meet to discuss include:

  1. This Week in Virology (TWiV) podcast
  2. Virology 101
  3. Virology – Biology W3310/4310
