The Division of Infectious Diseases at the Indiana University School of Medicine has conducted clinical trials and research to improve the health and well-being of Indiana adults and adolescents with a variety of infections for over 40 years. We specifically have performed studies in the areas of HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections (herpes, human papillomavirus, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia), and sexual behavioral medicine. Our research group currently conducts trials to determine the usefulness of vaccines to prevent infections and new medicines to treat existing infections. We also conduct studies to learn more about how infectious agents interact with humans to cause disease in order to devise new ways to protect us from illness. Our overall goal is to improve the quality of life of patients with infectious diseases and to reduce the spread of these infections in our community.
Indiana University Infectious Diseases Research (IUIDR) is a research group for the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Indiana University School of Medicine. Our group also includes physicians from the Division of Adolescent Medicine and the Department of Microbiology and Immunology who study infections.
Study volunteers are evaluated in the Bell Flower Clinic, first floor Fifth Third Faculty Office Building at 640 Eskenazi Avenue and at the Clinical Research Center (CRC) on the 5th floor of University Hospital at 550 N. University Blvd.
