Areas of Research

The Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has a large research portfolio, with research spanning from host-pathogen interactions (microbiology, immunology, pathogenesis and drug discovery), to clinical and behavioral studies (natural history, clinical trials, health outcomes, health behaviors), to community and public health (epidemiology, modeling, implementation science).  We focus on a range of pathogens, with well-funded programs in sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, infections in immunocompromised host, infections in people who use drugs, respiratory infections, including SARS-CoV-2, and tuberculosis, and enteric and parasitic infections.

Research Centers

Collaborating with faculty across the University of Washington and partnering with local, state, and national government organizations, we conduct the full spectrum of "bench to bedside to community" research to improve the delivery of clinical care.
