Infectious diseases

Since 1980, a new human pathogen has been identified every seven months (Climate and Health Initiative 2008), and the incidences of many of these pathogens threaten to increase over the next few decades.

Duke has a broad array of research activities investigating emerging infectious diseases. Key collaborators include the Duke University Human Vaccine Institute, Center for AIDS Research, Duke Clinical Research Institute, Duke Infection Control Outreach Network, Duke Endocarditis Database, Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore, and regional consortia such as the Southeast Regional Center of Excellence in Biodefense and Emerging Infections. Outstanding facilities and laboratories are available to study a range of emerging infections.
