Translational Immunology and Infectious Diseases Institute (TIIDI)

Led by Founding Director Dr. David Topham, Ph.D., the mission of this Institute is to:

  • Conduct clinical and translational research to understand the etiology and impact of viral, bacterial, and fungal pathogens, the immune responses to them, and to develop and evaluate knowledge-based strategies for their control, treatment, and prevention. Multidisciplinary, team-science approaches to critical issues in infectious diseases are essential to this mission.
  • Education and training of clinician scientists in adult and pediatric infectious disease and immunology. Committed to the support of developing the careers of young investigators interested in pursuing research.
