Respiratory tract infections are a major cause of disease and death globally. Research in the Department of the Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases includes studies on the impacts of vaccines against bacteria and viruses that cause pneumonia, laboratory and population studies of the ecology of bacteria in the respiratory tract (including microbiome studies), mathematical and statistical modeling of the effects of interventions, environmental studies and spatial modeling of the risk for legionnaire's disease, and surveillance for flu and other respiratory pathogens.
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
