About Us Our purpose and Vision for the future

The purpose of the Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology is, through research, to illuminate fundamental aspects of infectious challenges and how animal and human hosts respond. We serve to bridge these advances in understanding with improvements in the protection and restoration of animal, human and environmental health. We operate on a global scale to make society more resilient and prepared to withstand infectious diseases through the discovery and development of new drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tests.
