Research at the Center for Infection and Immunity is multidisciplinary and integrates the efforts of scientists and physicians specializing in molecular and systems biology, epidemiology, immunology, and neurobiology.
Our aims are to:
- Determine the roles of microbes in the development of acute infectious and chronic diseases
- Dissect the mechanisms by which the response to infection results in disease
- Find strategies to reduce the global burden of infectious diseases
The CII has trained more than 50 investigators from 30 countries in pathogen discovery and diagnostics and continue to collaborate with global investigators towards a global public health system or “global immune system”.
