Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division
Infectious Disease Sciences (IDS) is a research program within the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division. IDS patient care services and research projects aim to advance knowledge of host-pathogen interactions and develop innovative management strategies for infectious diseases that cause significant morbidity and mortality both in immunocompetent and immunocompromised populations, specifically those relating to cancer, HIV, and organ and stem cell transplantation.
Major areas of research include:
IDS was formed in 1996 as a program in the Clinical Research Division, and became one of the main disciplines of VIDD in 2007. The IDS faculty includes scientists with diverse clinical and research backgrounds, many of whom have joint appointments with UW Medicine and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). Other members of IDS include colleagues from a variety of University of Washington departments, including the Virology Division, Department of Laboratory Medicine, and the Department of Medicine, Allergy and Infectious Diseases Division. The importance of the relationship and synergy with UW Medicine and SCCA is exemplified by the Infectious Disease Consult Service and UW Virology.
The program is led by Dr. Michael Boeckh, who is a member of the Clinical Research Division as well as VIDD and holds a position on the VIDD Executive Committee. He is also a Professor of Medicine within the Division of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine at University of Washington.
