Infectious Diseases

The Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine trains residents and fellows, researches diseases for causes, treatments and cures, and offers patient care on a consultative basis.

The team includes board-certified infectious-disease physicians, HIV and transplant specialists, epidemiologists, nurses, pharmacists, research scientists and other health professionals.

Our research programs, funded by the National Institutes of Health and foundation awards, include studies of microbial pathogenesis (bacterial, fungal, viral and protozoal), innate and adaptive immunity, vaccine immunology and urinary tract infections in nursing home patients.

Training Future Researchers

Mentor training is key to preparing for research careers. Cedars-Sinai faculty specialize in transplant infectious diseases, hospital epidemiology members and complications related to HIV.

Connecting to Research

The Immunology & Infectious Diseases labs study pathogen biology, host defense, cell biology and the epidemiological aspects of diseases.
