James Loggins Hadler MD, MPH
Clinical Professor of Epidemiology (Microbial Diseases)
Extensive Research Description
Infectious diseases are one of the main contributors to global
mortality and morbidity. The Division of Epidemiology of Microbial
Diseases (EMD) has a tradition of both research and teaching courses
designed to understand the distribution, transmission, pathogenesis,
and ultimately the control of pathogens. A unique feature of EMD is
the strong laboratory component within an epidemiology division. Areas
of excellence include HIV/AIDS, vector biology, parasitology, molecular
epidemiology, immunology, and the modeling of infectious diseases.
