Joseph M. Carlin has been promoted to professor of microbiology.
Carlin received bachelor’s and doctoral degrees from Michigan State University. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before joining Miami’s faculty in 1990.
His research group has focused on host-pathogen interactions, in particular, infections with Chlamydia and the mechanisms by which these intracellular pathogens evade the immune response. His investigations may facilitate the development of effective vaccine strategies for reducing the incidence of the leading bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the United States.
Carlin has supervised independent research projects of more than 50 undergraduates, several of whom have had their results published in peer-reviewed journals. He also has directed the work of seven doctoral students and six master’s students.
He has served as the chair and councilor of the general medical microbiology division of the American Society of Microbiology and has received several grants in support of his research from the National Institutes of Health.
