The Center for Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Inflammatory Responses provides an integrated and supportive research infrastructure that significantly enhances the ability of Project Leaders to establish independent, extramurally funded research programs.

We offer a scientific and administrative foundation created under this umbrella to recruit additional junior investigators whose research interests are consistent with the underlying scientific theme and whose participation further enhances overall program synergy. The long-term goal is to integrate Project Leaders with newly recruited junior investigators, as well as with established investigators who can significantly expand their existing research programs, to create the collaborative and translational synergy required for the development of successful program-project applications.
