Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases
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.
