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.More About Us
