MCW Center for Infectious Disease Research (CIDR)

The mission of the Center for Infectious Disease Research (CIDR), is to enhance research efforts that focus on understanding the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis related to infection with all types of microorganisms, viruses, fungi or parasites. These efforts also include programs to define host factors contributing to disease resistance or susceptibility, host recognition of foreign materials and the innate and adaptive immune responses following exposure to infectious organisms.
