Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Medicine


The Division of Infectious Diseases conducts cutting-edge clinical and laboratory research that seeks to translate novel scientific findings into new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious disease. The Division has played an important role in advances that have shed light on HIV and impacted the clinical care for patients with HIV/AIDS. Building on that tradition, the Division seeks to allow the gains made in genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics research to improve the quality of health care to reach all populations, particularly those who bear the greatest burden of infectious diseases.

The division has 17 NIH-funded investigators, as well as an additional faculty member funded by other grant mechanisms. It receives over $10 million in annual biomedical research grants from the NIH to support our work. Research initiatives in our Division cut across scientific disciplines and institutions.
