Infections in the Immunocompromised Host

Many organisms that do not normally cause disease in immunocompetent persons can become life-threatening in those with compromised immune systems. Cancer patients undergoing immunosuppressive therapy and post transplant recipients are especially at risk for contracting one of these infections. Treatment and prevention, as well as molecular diagnostics, pathogenesis studies, and immunology are a few approaches implemented by VIDD faculty.
