Infectious Diseases

Every day, millions of people around the world are vaccinated or treated for infectious diseases, a testament to the power of modern science to counter pathogens. At Scripps Research, we know we can do much more. We are making rapid advances in explaining how malaria, HIV, Ebola, Zika virus and other pathogens infect and attack the body. We are decoding how human genetics factor into a person’s ability to fight off an infection. And we are designing the next generation of vaccines and therapies to save lives around the world.
