Epidemiology and Clinical Infectious Diseases

Research in epidemiology and clinical infectious diseases is conducted at UVA’s hospital and medical center and at ID partner sites overseas, in areas that include antibiotic resistance (its spread and control), diagnostics, epidemiology of infectious diseases within both patient and general  populations, and factors that influence disease susceptibility.

The following division faculty conduct research and instruct fellows in Clinical Infectious Diseases:
