UVA Division of Infectious Diseases and International Health has a long tradition of excellence in research, patient care and education. Today, division faculty are extending that tradition into new frontiers of research, and training a new generation of physician-scientists to meet the challenges of infectious diseases in an increasingly “flat” global community.

Research is supported by more than $20 million in annual extramural funding in 8 departments and 4 divisions in the School of Medicine, including global health initiatives supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the NIH, and carried out with partners in countries around the world, among them Bangladesh, Brazil, Haiti, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.

There has never been a more challenging — or exciting — time for students, clinicians, teachers and researchers in our field. Explore the website to learn more about our programs, and feel free to contact us with your questions.
