About the Infectious and Inflammatory Disease Center
There are a number of scientists here whose work is really on the verge of being translated into the clinic. I want to promote that as much as possible.
Infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis continue to rank high among global mortality factors, especially in developing countries, and systemic inflammation has been identified as a root case of many chronic disorders in the developed world. The IIDC’s mission is to map the molecular intricacies of the immune system and pathogen cells and apply this knowledge to generate new therapeutics for autoimmune diseases, infection and cancer.
