Data Center Description
Within the John Hopkins Molecular Microbiology and Immunology
department molecular microbiology and immunology integrates many
disciplines (biochemistry, virology, parasitology, molecular biology,
immunology,ecology structural biology) concerned with the study of the
transmission, immunobiology, and pathogenesis of bacterial, parasitic,
viral, and immunological diseases of public health
importance. Research is at the population, organismal, cellular, and
molecular levels. The central premise of this broad approach to the
study of disease is that public health problems can best be addressed
by understanding basic biological mechanisms. Our research aims to
advance the understanding of the biology of disease and to use this
knowledge to solve public health problems. Research takes place in the
laboratory, in the clinic, and in the field, as the faculty works to
combat such enormous public health problems as malaria, sexually
transmitted diseases, mosquito-borne encephalitis, tuberculosis,
diarrhea, measles, AIDS, and autoimmune diseases.
