In 1976, the Division of Infectious Diseases and the Division of Allergy (founded in 1949), were combined to form the new Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (AID), led by Dr. Seymour Klebanoff.

Our nationally and internationally prominent faculty leaders are working to solve the world’s most urgent health problems. We conduct innovative basic and clinical research in a wide range of areas, including treating and studying sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS, immunology and global health. 

Supported by training grants from the NIH, private funding agencies, and institutional sources, we offer postdoctoral fellowship training programs in infectious diseases, allergy and immunology.
