Infectious Disease

Globally, human lifespans have been increasing in large part due to advances in treating and eliminating infectious diseases. Yet, the threat from emerging, reemerging and entrenched infectious diseases remains a challenge for society. Traditional methodology has had success in the past, but with an ever-globalizing world, the need for fast, accurate and comprehensive research is paramount. Partnering with international collaborators is enabling JCVI to be the catalyst for better understanding and potential new treatments against the scourge of infectious disease.
