This program will train academic physician-scientists to perform research in infectious diseases and immunity in children. Infectious diseases still account for extensive morbidity and mortality throughout the world, and trained researchers are needed who can apply powerful new scientific methods to bring these diseases under control. One of the areas of emphasis, of this training program, will be the use of powerful new methods to study microbial and human genomics.
