The Institute of Microbiology and Infection at the University of Birmingham houses one of the largest groups of microbiologists in the UK. Established in late 2011, this cross-college venture has brought together researchers from the College of Life and Environmental Sciences and the College of Medical and Dental Sciences. Researchers within the IMI work on a broad range of research topics, from tuberculosis (TB) to antibiotic resistance. More information on the IMI and profiles of staff members can be found here.
