The Microbiology Building is located on the Main CSU Campus, just west of College Avenue on Pitkin Street.

Microbiology consists of three wings;

  • The "A" Wing - a two-story lecture wing located on the west side of the building.

  • The "B" Wing - a 4 story administrative and laboratory wing.

  • The "C" Wing - a 4 story administrative and laboratory wing located on the east side of the building.

MIP students can take advantage of several state-of-the-art facilities in this building including a computer lab, mass spectrophotometers, and ultra-low temperature freezers. The Molecular Quantification Core​ is available to CSU researchers for imaging of fluorescent and radioactive experiments.

Researchers located within the Microbiology Building study primarily Tuberculosis, Leprosy, mRNA Metabolism, and Virology.

Learn more about the research being done in Microbiology by visiting the following laboratory websites:

Mycobacterial Research Laboratories (MRL) - multiple laboratories and BSL3 facilities are associated with the MRL and participate in a wide variety of independent and collaborative mycobacterial-related research programs.

The Wilusz​ Laboratory - interested in the mechanisms and regulation of mRNA metabolism in eukaryotic cells and how these processes influence pathogenesis of human diseases, including cancer, viral infection and myotonic dystrophy.

The Geiss Laboratory - focus is understanding how mosquito-borne Flaviviruses and Alphaviruses replicate at the molecular and biochemical level in order to develop novel strategies for the prevention and treatment of arboviral diseases.
