Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics
CIDD embraces all scales and components of infectious disease biology. Our interdisciplinary approach, coupled with a dynamic viewpoint, provides insight into how to prevent or reduce infections.
We’re trying to find genes that are the Achilles heel of the malaria parasite.
At CIDD, we study infections from the perspective of the parasitic agent. Our faculty and research span human, animal, and plant systems to determine the unique demands of the parasitic lifestyle, the responses of the hosts and how the environment affects these interactions.
This approach yields novel insights into the biological processes that drive the biology and evolution of infectious agents, and the processes that can be used to limit their harm to individual and population health.
