The Johns Hopkins Division of Infectious Diseases operates a number of internationally recognized centers that further their innovative research and patient care. Our investigators also work collaboratively with other institutes and labs to conduct innovative research across disciplines.
The Division of Infectious Diseases works to prevent illness, disability and death caused by infectious diseases. In the past two decades, the HIV pandemic and its fellow travelers, tuberculosis, hepatitis C and STDs, have been our biggest challenges. Many areas of scientific interest range from basic laboratory research to conducting clinical trials. The division is actively developing effective vaccines and treatments to combat the spread of infectious diseases. Current research initiatives in our division include:
