See how we changed: Information on the New Department of Infectious Diseases and ImmunologyThe Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology brings together a diverse spectrum of research on veterinary and human disease.
The overarching aim is to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of disease for the improvement of overall health.
Who we are:
Faculty in IDI work to address a wide variety of disease challenges covering many fields: bacterial, viral and parasitic infections; autoimmune disorders; mucosal immunology and cancer highlight just some of the faculty interests.
IDI faculty leverage complementary approaches to study these diseases. Cellular, molecular, genetic, phylogenetic, transcriptomic, proteomic and epidemiologic platforms, among others, are strongly utilized.
The department also boasts faculty standouts who are members of the National Academy of Science and the National Academy of Inventors.
Common themes throughout the department unite the IDI program. These include development of new techniques for diagnosing known and emerging pathogens, new vaccine platforms, single-cell analyses and impactful interventions for animal and human diseases.
