Research and Education

 

Research

The Division of Infectious Diseases is committed to excellence in laboratory research. The National Institutes of Health, national and international private industries, and private foundations fund our research programs. Ongoing research efforts include respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza virus, parainfluenza, pneumococcal, tuberculosis, vaccine combinations, and HIV vaccines.

We focus our clinical research efforts primarily on the Vanderbilt Vaccine Research Program. It is one of only eight vaccine treatment and evaluation units in the nation to receive a new contract to continue evaluating innovative vaccines for malaria, pandemic flu, the growing problem of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and other infections.

Our faculty members also lead the Institute for Global Health, which advances health and development in the world's resource-limited regions. With projects in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean, its mission is based on service and capacity-building, training of Vanderbilt and in-country health professionals, and pragmatic public health research.

Education

The Division of Infectious Disease offers a fellowship training program that provides an excellent opportunity for a broad-based, comprehensive clinical and research experience. The three-year program prepares fellows for an academic career. It is our philosophy that investigative and clinical skills acquired during training should distinguish the fellow as highly competitive for research funding and outstanding in clinical competence.
