An Interdisciplinary Approach to Understanding Infectious Disease

The Institute for Infectious Disease Translational Research is a multi-primary investigator endeavor, with highly regarded experts in various fields leading novel and unique research contributions within the four-year institute plan. We aim to uncover new yet crucial evidence in understanding the emergence and persistence of infectious diseases. With our discoveries, we will be able to take our findings from bench-to-bedside and develop innovative solutions to combat the destructive effects of these pathogens.

Emerging and Congenital Infectious Diseases Are a Public Health Concern Across the USA, including South Carolina.

The highest impact research today involves leveraging multiple perspectives, skillsets and areas of expertise to come up with the most comprehensive possible understanding of or solution to a significant issue.
