The Graduate Group in Infectious Diseases and Immunity provides opportunity for the study of the biology of infectious agents, their interaction with human and other hosts, and their relationship with the environment. The program is unique in its emphasis on integrated multidisciplinary training in host-pathogen-environmental interactions. Important areas of inquiry include the biology of host-pathogen interactions, molecular and cellular aspects of pathogenesis, the ecology and evolution of disease agents, environmental factors in transmission, host and pathogen genetic factors that influence transmission, intermediate hosts and vectors, the molecular epidemiology and phylogenetics, vaccine, drug, and diagnostic test development, and public health practices for disease prevention and control.
The Infectious Disease and Immunity (IDI) Graduate Group, its website is at http://microbe.berkeley.edu/idgroup/index.html, is a campus-wide graduate program comprised of faculty representing multiple campus units, including the Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology (IDV) comprised of a core faculty described in the IDV Division website http://microbe.berkeley.edu/ . The IDI Graduate Group is administratively managed by the Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology (IDV) of the School of Public Health but it is not part of IDV.
