PMI in the News
Keim Award 2021
The Keim Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research is designed to reward excellence in research by outstanding NAU students during their undergraduate studies.
Stenoparib & COVID-19
Stenoparib, an inhibitor of cellular poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP), blocks replication of the SARS-CoV-2 and HCoV-NL63 human coronaviruses in vitro.
Antimicrobial Resistant Yersinia Pestis
Known as the infamous Black Death, Plague continues to affect hundreds of people globally each year in underdeveloped countries.
PMI is home to many state of the art labs and research facilities.
BSL-1 The Biosafety Level 1 (BSL-1) Lab works with low-risk microbes that pose little to no threat of infection to healthy adults.
BSL-2 The Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) Lab is suitable for work involving agents that pose moderate hazards to personnel and the environment.
BSL-3 The Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) Lab works with Select Agents that have the potential to pose a sever threat to public health and safety.
Genetic Analysis The Genetic Analysis Instrument allows for the detection of the anticipated DNA target region during the early phases of the reaction.
PCR Amplification PCR is used to exponentially amplify a single copy of a segment of DNA and check whether the reaction successfully generated the anticipated DNA target region.
Funding Sources & Collaborators
The research at Pathogen & Microbiome Institute is funded by grants from federal, state, and local sources. Our extensive research collaborates with scientists and organizations from across the globe.
