Name of creator
This department in the Faculty of Health Sciences was founded in 1895, when Dr. Walter Connell became Queen's first head of Pathology and Bacteriology. In 1919, Bacteriology and Pathology became separate departments, with Dr. Guilford Reed becoming the first head of Bacteriology. In the late 1960s, the department was renamed Microbiology and Immunology. Teaching and research in the department originally focused on infectious diseases and bacteriology, and during the Second World War some members of the department worked on top-secret research in biological warfare for the Canadian government.
The department was closely associated with the provincial Public Health Laboratory in Kingston since the latter was founded in 1907 with Dr. Connell as regional bacteriologist and pathologist.
In 2014, the programs of Microbiology and Immunology became part of the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences.
