In addition to classroom training, students pursue Microbiology major have opportunities to gain in-demand skills and hands-on experience by working in research under mentorship of one Department member.
Our research interests extend from discovering microbial diversity and genetic resource through microbial genetic engineering and exploitation of microorganism in food and fermentation industry, bioremediation, sustainable agriculture, and biofuel production. Research projects in Department of Microbiology are supported from various prominent sources, such as National Foundation for Science and Technology (NAFOSTED), Vietnam National University-Hanoi (VNU-Hanoi), Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT Vietnam), International Foundation for Science (IFS-Sweden).
Department of Microbiology encompass a strong group of faculty who are leading scientist in multiple areas of microbiology science.
