The Microbial Sciences Initiative at Harvard University is an intellectual epicenter of microbiology.
MSI was founded on the belief that research flourishes where communication and collaboration are maximized. MSI is a cross-campus entity uniting more than 100 research laboratories at Harvard University and nucleating microbe-based innovation across New England.
