The infectious disease division leads research across a broad spectrum of pathogens and disease states. 

Research approaches include epidemiology, outcomes research, drug-resistance and drug discovery/development, basic disease pathogenesis and immunology. Members of the division compose just a fraction of the collaborative microbial sciences research on the UW-Madison campus that exists in numerous departments and colleges.

Major areas of research include:

  • Drug-resistance and discovery
  • Epidemiology and prevention and management of infectious diseases
  • Infectious diseases pathogenesis and immunology
