Welcome from the Interim Director, Dr. David Thanassi

Welcome to the Center for Infectious Diseases (CID) at Stony Brook University!  The mission of the CID is to foster interdisciplinary and cutting-edge research and training in microbial pathogenesis, immunity to infection and antimicrobial drug discovery.  The interdisciplinary nature of our mission is reflected in our   Faculty, who have appointments in five different Departments: Biochemistry, Chemistry, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Pathology, and Pharmacology.  The CID maintains state-of-the-art interdepartmental research laboratory space and equipment to facilitate collaborative discoveries. Our goal of training   graduate students  and postdoctoral fellows  to become future leaders in the field is realized through our own   seminar series, our participation in several exceptional   graduate programs   and the NIH-funded   Molecular and Cell Biology of Infectious Diseases Training Program  for PhD students.  Together with other outstanding Faculty in other Departments, including Medicine, and the new Global Health Institute, the CID is leading a strong community of researchers at Stony Brook who are committed to understanding and preventing infectious diseases.  I invite you to learn more about the CID on this web site or by contacting us.
