The Sherrilyn and Ken Fisher Center for Environmental Infectious Diseases

Created in 2012, the Sherrilyn and Ken Fisher Center for Environmental Infectious Diseases is dedicated to the clinical research of diseases that may be classified as environmental infectious diseases.  The term “environmental infectious disease” includes disease causing agents found in traditional ecological environments, such as air, soil, and water, in addition to vector-borne or zoonotic diseases, and those acquired from built environments (home, hospital and community).
