IHV was founded, in part, on an exceptional history of HIV research, a strength that continues to this day. Over the last nearly two decades, pathogenesis research in the Division of Infectious Agents and Cancer has expanded to encompass a variety of microbes, including:
- Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
- respiratory viruses
- hepatitis viruses
- hemorrhagic fever viruses
Clinical samples and animal models, as well as genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic profiling are used to characterize diseased and healthy states.
