Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbial Pathogenesis; Affiliated Faculty, Yale Institute for Global Health
The esteemed faculty members in the Microbial Pathogenesis group are dedicated to understanding the molecular interactions between microbial pathogens and their arthropod vectors, unraveling the intricate molecular and cellular mechanisms that microbial pathogens use to cause disease in the host as well as understanding how the host response to microbial pathogens prevents or enhances diseases with the overall goal of developing novel strategies to prevent and treat infectious diseases. Our expertise lies in the comprehensive study of medically relevant bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Through a multifaceted approach encompassing basic scientific research, translational studies, clinical investigations, and epidemiological studies, our team fosters a dynamic and intellectually diverse environment.
- Conduct high-impact research that pushes the boundaries of knowledge and catalyzes transformative breakthroughs in Microbial Pathogenesis
- To translate our research into clinically useful compounds and vaccines that will blunt the global impact of infectious diseases.
- Foster an enriching environment that is both nurturing and supportive, tailored to meet the needs of aspiring trainees, prospective scientists, physician-scientists, and physicians for careers in the field of Microbial Pathogenesis.
Our distinguished faculty members are involved in an array of cutting-edge microbial research endeavors, supported by grants from NIH. These studies encompass critical investigations addressing the pressing global challenges posed by emerging and reemerging viruses, and various other medically relevant pathogens. We offer a diverse range of training opportunities to researchers at every level, from undergraduate students seeking to embark on their scientific journey, to post-doctoral scholars aiming to advance their expertise in academia or industry.
Physicians in the Yale Microbial Diseases group provide care to patients with infections secondary to viruses, bacteria, and parasites.
The Microbial Pathogenesis group is focused on biomedically relevant questions and provides trainees with opportunities for academic and scientific development. Second year Infectious diseases fellows may choose to join one of the labs in this group.
