Mission of the Center for Excellence in Inflammation, Infectious Disease, and Immunity
The mission of the Center is to coordinate efforts and facilitate interactions among members of the ETSU biomedical research community in order to advance education, research, and clinical applications in inflammation, immune, and infectious diseases.
The Center serves as an integrated and synergistic environment for basic, applied, and translational research that is focused on the development of new and novel approaches to the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of human diseases.
The Center offers a sense of community for a critical mass of investigators that are focused on clinically relevant problems in modern medicine.
A major objective of the Center is to create an intellectual and scholarly environment that increases our competitiveness for extramural funding including investigator initiated grants, program projects, center grants, contracts, and training grants.
