About Our Research

The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, under the direction of Toni Darville, MD, includes a diverse team of research faculty, staff, and students. Basic, clinical, and translational studies are underway to understand the mechanisms of disease development with the ultimate goal of developing new diagnostics and vaccines for children.

Research efforts within the Pediatric Infectious Disease division include projects involving: HIV, Hepatitis, Chlamydia trachomatis, antimicrobial resistance, antibiotic stewardship, disease pathogenesis, global health initiatives, vaccine development, and many more.

Our faculty collaborates in these projects with colleagues across campus, including researchers working throughout the School of Medicine, the Gillings School of Global Public Health, and the School of Pharmacy.
