The Division of Experimental Medicine is focused on the creation of new and effective vaccines and therapies against chronic infectious agents such as HIV, HCV, TB, malaria and parasitic worms. Our faculty are outstanding scientists who are experts in one or more of these infectious diseases and who wish to collaborate with one another to understand how the human immune system can best handle infection, with the goal to discover better treatments or effective vaccines. The Division is one of the few places in the world that has assembled such multidisciplinary teams working on the human immunology of these chronic infectious diseases. Our faculty also wish to attract, train, and promote a new cadre of physician scientists who can serve as the role models and catalysts for future scientific advances in global health.
