ID Fellowship Research

The ID Fellowship Training Program is balanced in all areas of our mission: research, clinical activities and education. Special features of the program include our research strengths in HIV, mycobacteriology, antimicrobial resistance, therapeutics for emerging infections, infectious diseases in the underserved and the epidemiology of infectious diseases. Our program is heavily invested in HIV-related research as we have both an AIDS Clinical Trials Unit (ACTU) and a Center for AIDS Research (CFAR). Our Tuberculosis Research Unit (TBRU) is a leader in interdisciplinary TB research. Multi-disciplinary research combining epidemiologic studies and clinical trials in TB endemic countries with modern microbiology, immunology, and genetics is essential to make progress in the fight against TB.

Case Western Reserve University and the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine have a long-standing interest and reputation in international health with important collaborations established in Africa, Asia and Latin America. International research is focused on HIV infection, tuberculosis, STDs, and tropical infections such as malaria, filariasis, schistosomiasis, and leishmaniasis. There are many research opportunities available for fellow trainees. Trainees, under the guidance of a research mentor, will select an area of research best suited for their career goals in their first year. During the second and third years of training, fellows will be actively involved in research projects under the supervision of a research mentor.
