Message from the Director

The Division of Infectious Diseases at Indiana University School of Medicine focuses on improving the health of local and global communities by preventing and treating a variety of infectious diseases. The division includes 35 faculty, four to six fellows-in-training, and dozens of valued administrative, educational, and research support staff.

The division provides expert infectious diseases clinical care in Indianapolis at IU Health's downtown academic health center and suburban facilities, at Sydney & Lois Eskenazi Health, and at Richard L. Roudebush Indianapolis VA Medical Center. The division takes particular pride in caring for people with HIV at these venues, which include two Ryan White federally-funded Tier 1 clinics.

The division's $5 million NIH, CDC, and industry-funded research portfolio supports investigations in HIV, malaria, sexually transmitted infections (including HPV, Hemophilus ducreyi, Neisseria gonorrhea, and Chlamydia trachomatis), group B streptococus, and Clostridium difficile. Infectious diseases faculty are renowned for their innovation, from development of the Gardasil HPV vaccine to the invention of the Histoplasma and Legionella antigen rapid diagnostic tests. The division also supports numerous investigator-initiated and commercially-sponsored clinical trials to bring new therapeutics to the clinic. HIV clinical and research global health programs are also internationally recognized for their excellence and leadership by divisional faculty, primarily through collaboration with the AMPATH HIV clinical care programs in Western Kenya.

The division is particularly proud of the growing fellowship program in producing the next generation of well-trained infectious diseases clinicians and physician-scientists. An ongoing NIH T32 program is available for those interested in a dedicated and extended research training experience.

Please take a moment to learn more about the Division of Infectious Diseases's multidisciplinary programs in all academic and clinical missions. For those interested in joining the division as faculty, trainees, or staff, we welcome your outreach and are always willing to discuss how you can make IU School of Medicine stronger!
