Our Programs

Educational Programs

MIBRC conducts a seminar series and annual symposium, and works in collaboration with other centers around the hospital to provide educational programming.

Graduate Fellowships and Research Opportunities

The Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital offers fellowship programs for postdoctoral students and medical students.

Summer Research Program

The Digestive Disease Summer Research Program provides short-term support for students at the undergraduate or medical school level to perform an independent 10-week research project.

The Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center (MIBRC) has been training undergraduate students, medical students, graduate students and postdoctoral/pediatric gastroenterology fellows in mucosal immunology and developmental gastroenterology for more than 25 years.

In addition to training in the lab, students can participate in a variety of seminars and symposia across Massachusetts General Hospital and the Harvard Medical School campus.

Students who have studied at the MIBRC have gone on to successful research careers in a variety of institutions and settings, including Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medicine, Yale, University of California, Indiana University Vanderbilt, Cornell University Weill School of Medicine, Washington University, the Peace Corps and other organizations.

Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center

Our major mission is to characterize the role of the enterocyte in mucosal barrier function at the interface between microbial luminal stimuli and lymphoid effector responses.
