At the Center for Infectious Disease Research, we are 15 labs with complementary expertise and specialties.

Every year, nearly 4 million people die from the “Big Three” (HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria) infectious diseases. For real progress in combating these diseases and other infectious diseases, fundamental knowledge is still lacking. Successfully preventing and treating these infectious diseases will require, and will be dramatically hastened by, a deep scientific understanding of pathogen biology, the human immune system, and the interface between them.

We have a diverse group of researchers from many disciplines, and we are fortunate to all be working under the same roof and for the same global mission. Because of this, we utilize collaboration and come together to share strategies and knowledge. We aim to discover potential overlaps in disease functionality and to identify the grand challenges of infectious disease research. Together, we have greater potential to combat some of the world’s most devastating diseases.
