Welcome to the Division of Infectious Diseases

The faculty of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Indiana University School of Medicine is committed to superb clinical care, education and research in infectious diseases. We strive to achieve these goals by capitalizing on our strengths to ensure meaningful progress in each discipline. Our basic and clinical research endeavors promote the acquisition of knowledge concerning infectious diseases and lead to innovative strategies to combat pathogens. We utilize our research achievements to improve both patient care and medical education.
