Infectious diseases have been major threats to health throughout history. We have made great advances in the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases with antibiotics and vaccines—yet new challenges continue to arise.
UR Medicine’s Infectious Diseases Division specializes in viral infections such as:
- Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
- Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- Human papilloma virus (HPV)
We have expertise in the community surveillence of pathogens, vaccine research for HIV, COVID-19, Influenza, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and the development of treatments for viral, fungal and bacterial pathogens.
Our New York State designated AIDS Center provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for persons with HIV infection.
UR Medicine's Approach
Our physicians, nurses and therapists specialize in treating every variety of infectious disease, including bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infection—from HIV and COVID-19 to hospital-acquired infections, sexually transmitted diseases, and infections related to surgery, transplantation, trauma, and cancer therapy.
To request a physician's appointment, call (585) 275-5871. If you must cancel your appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance.
Self-scheduling for Follow-up Appointments
We are now offering online self-scheduling for follow-up appointments! If you'd like to schedule a follow-up appointment, login to your MyChart account and go to "Appointments and Visits" to get started!
We're offering a convenient new way to access some of our services using telemedicine. Telemedicine provides an efficient way to attend appointments with our providers, from the privacy and comfort of your home.
What Sets Us Apart?
Our division is home to world class researchers who staff our Infectious Diseases Research Clinic, where our National Institutes of Health (NIH)-designated UR Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Unit (VTEU) conducts clinical trials of new vaccines, treatments and diagnostics. This unit was instrumental in testing novel COVID-19 vaccines and treatments during the recent pandemic, as well as RSV treatments for adults, and is participating in clinical trials for a universal influenza vaccine. Our HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Unit (also known as the Rochester Victory Alliance, a designated clinical research site of the NIH) has been conducting HIV research since 1987.
