CTEGD is one of the nation’s most prominent biomedical research and training programs. Joining CTEGD you will have the choice among numerous laboratories that work at the forefront of global health. We study infectious diseases that are cause by parasites.
While our research groups have a common goal, they vary in approach. Many are focused on understanding the fundamental biology of the disease. These groups are largely lab based, and use tractable model systems to discover novel phenomena and mechanisms. Other groups conduct field based research, rooted in public health and medicine. The specific question is focused on the pathogen, the host, or the arthropod vector. Much research targets the interaction between host and parasite.
CTEGD offers an outstanding research environment with access to the newest equipment and technology in individual labs and shared facilities and the stimulating intellectual environment of more than 125 scientists from all over the world committed to global health research.
