This broad research area allows the candidate to bring their research interests into the role (e.g., basic science, clinical trials, translational research, computational epidemiology and mathematical modelling, etc). This role will allow for diverse and meaningful collaboration with the ongoing research activities occurring within the Section on Infectious Diseases (, the Department of Microbiology and Immunology (, and the Section on Comparative Medicine ( beyond.

The faculty candidate, serving as director of this research activity, will promote and facilitate multidisciplinary research efforts, creating teams able to describe the interactome, identify and develop potential interventions, characterize the epidemiology, and conduct the pre-clinical and clinical trials necessary to assess the impact. The Center Director will move the institution to the top tier of research institutions in this area through partnership and the use of enterprise assets that will position us to effectively compete for extramural funding and lead to key therapeutic discoveries.
