Infectious Diseases

The Infectious Diseases Research Group of VHIR is constituted by professionals from Medicine, with clinical and translational research activities, from Biology dedicated to basic research and from Nursing with clinical research support activities. The group's lines of research are mainly focused on three areas: 

  • Bacterial resistance, healthcare-related infections and complex community infections.
  • Epidemiology, therapeutics and mechanisms for the eradication of the AIDS virus.
  • Global health with special emphasis on diseases prevalent in our environment that affect immigrant or displaced populations. 

The different lines of research are complemented by research activities carried out with patients with others carried out in biological experimentation laboratories. The researchers of the group collaborate with other national and international groups and are part of 3 Collaborative Research Networks:

  • REIPI: Spanish Network for Research in Infectious Diseases
  • RIS: AIDS Research Network
  • RICET: Collaborative Research Network on Tropical Diseases
