The Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Program is the 2019-2020 Deans’ Cup winner!

Deans’ Cup is an annual community service competition among GSBS graduate programs, organized by the Outreach Program. We host several volunteering opportunities throughout the year, and by the end of the spring semester, the program with the highest percentage of student/faculty participation wins the Deans’ Cup. First-year students are also encouraged to participate and can indicate a program of their choosing, or be considered part of the “First-Year Students” team. Friends, family, and lab mates are all welcome to participate and will count toward the final tally! This is a great opportunity to give back to our community and meet students and faculty throughout GSBS.
