The Pathogen and Microbiome Institute (PMI)

The Pathogen and Microbiome Institute (PMI) is a state-of-the-art research facility located at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ.

In an era of superbugs, bioterrorism, and pandemics, the need for new technologies to fight a host of rapidly evolving and potentially deadly diseases has never been greater.

The Pathogen and Microbiome Institute (PMI) represents a key investment in the technologies of the future. PMI greatly expands NAU’s capabilities to conduct both basic and translational research in the following areas:

• Pathogen microbiology

• Biological Select Agents or Toxins (BSAT)

• Hospital-acquired infections

• The role of the microbiome in chronic healthcare challenges

PMI is committed to undergraduate and graduate student research training in an internationally-recognized world-class facility. There are over 100 faculty, full-time staff, graduate, and undergraduate students currently working at the Institute with additional researchers closely associated with PMI on the NAU-FLG campus.


  • In April of 2019, the Keim Genetics Lab, located on the campus of Northern Arizona University, celebrated thirty years of cutting edge research.
