Infectious and Global Diseases Research Program

Infectious and Global Diseases Research Program

The goal of the Infectious and Global Diseases Research Program (IGDRP) is to enhance the research capabilities for multidisciplinary collaborations that will lead to translational research in infectious and global diseases. The strategy to accomplish this goal is to provide access and support to advanced specialized technology that will enhance research capacity and promote activities that will improve interactions between clinicians and basic scientists and   stimulate translational research. The IGDRP sponsors an “Infectious Diseases and Global Health Disparities Network” and a seminar series offered by worldwide recognized scientists to further enhance interactions between scientists working in infectious diseases within and outside Puerto Rico.

The Specific Aims of the Global Diseases Research Program are:

  • To provide infrastructural support to enhance research capabilities and productivity in areas of translational research at the T1 and T2 level in infectious diseases impacting global health.
  • To stimulate researchers to become actively engaged in translational research projects in infectious diseases of global impact by promoting collaborations between basic scientists, clinicians and/or partnerships with the private sector from local as well as national or international institutions
  • To enhance interactions between scientists working in infectious diseases through the development of an “Infectious Diseases and Global Health Disparities Network” and a seminar series offered by worldwide recognized scientists in the field.
