Faculty in the Division of Infectious Diseases are actively engaged in clinical trials, translational research, and basic science, with laboratories located in Sacramento and at the main campus in Davis. Major areas of emphasis include HIV and AIDS, Hepatitis B and C, nosocomial infections, especially Clostridium difficile and MRSA, and bacterial pathogenesis. Infectious Diseases faculty also work closely with others in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, the California National Primate Research Center, and the Center for Comparative Medicine, where studies are ongoing to better understand a broad range of infectious diseases, including Helicobacter, Salmonella, malaria, CMV, influenza, Giardia, and tuberculosis, to name just a few. Basic and clinical programs are linked by the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center, which was among the first of these national research centers established by the NIH in 2006.
