Fueling New Knowledge of Infectious Disease Dynamics
What We Do
UCI Infectious Disease Science Initiative aims to position UCI as a global leader in research and education in infectious disease dynamics by fueling the development of new knowledge and insights into the dynamics of infectious diseases and drug resistance. The Initiative will seek to use data science to answer questions about what factors drive and sustain infectious disease outbreaks and what can be done to predict and prevent the emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
