A world free
from the threat of infectious diseases

Because
No One
is Immune.

For the past 15 years, a new infectious disease has been discovered nearly every year, with an outbreak reported on nearly every continent. These threats of pandemic diseases, food-borne illnesses, climate change, and global trade and transit underscore the importance of addressing the complexity of infectious diseases and public health preparedness. It requires more than collaboration.

Flipping the model to strengthen team science

Thoughtful feedback early in IDI’s formation inspired a transformative approach to connecting faculty members to opportunities. “We’re looking at our networks and communities and thinking about how we can help them achieve what they previously couldn’t,” says Director Mike Oglesbee.
