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 $29 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 or view our FY 2015 annual report to learn more about our programs, and feel free to contact us with your questions.
