Clinical Research

Clinical research in the Duke Division of Infectious Diseases paves the way for the effective treatment of many types of infectious disease.

Our researchers test vaccines, medications, and therapies to combat the spread of infectious disease and treat the symptoms.

There are many clinical research tracks that students and other researchers can pursue alongside current investigators. The following table introduces the clinical research initiatives and the investigators associated with each.
