Researchers in Infection Biology are working to combat the global health emergencies of today and the future.
Fueled by an increasingly interconnected world, population growth and climate change, infectious diseases are a growing threat to public health. Outbreaks can spread rapidly and are responsible for 15 million deaths each year. Now more than ever, effective responses to emerging global health emergencies will require research and optimized infrastructure to support discoveries.
Infection Biology will work to rapidly develop diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics to prepare for and protect against current and future pathogen threats. The program will broaden understanding of microbial pathogens and host immune responses in a multidisciplinary manner. Our current program includes basic, translational and clinical research in the fields of virology, microbiology, immunology, genomics and population health. The program will also educate and train the next generation of scientists to combat the challenge of global pathogens.
