The Division of Infectious Diseases (ID) conducts basic, translational, clinical and epidemiologic research in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a number of diseases, including bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral infectious diseases. The Division of Infectious Diseases has a cadre of internationally recognized physician-scientists devoted to basic laboratory and patient-centered research, both in the United States and abroad. Current sponsored research and training in the Division includes approximately 40 NIH, CDC, HRSA, foundation and pharmaceutical grants and contracts.

The ID Division research facilities include over 12,000 square feet of laboratory research and administrative space. There are 10 research laboratories (7,500 square feet) with adjacent staff offices. The ID laboratory research space is located adjacent to the Weill Cornell Department of Microbiology, allowing close collaboration between investigators and research teams. Major laboratory research projects in the ID Division investigate antibiotic and antifungal drug development, bacterial pathogenesis and drug resistance, bioterrorism agents, influenza, leishmaniasis, malaria, and tuberculosis.

Clinical research programs include the HIV Clinical Trials Unit, located adjacent to the HIV primary care clinic in two locations (New York Presbyterian Hospital and 119 West 24th Street, Chelsea); as well as clinical research programs in Transplant/Oncology infectious diseases and Hospital Epidemiology/Infection Control. Major clinical research projects investigate bacterial infections and drug resistance, healthcare-associated infections, hepatitis B and C, HIV/AIDS, human papillomavirus, and transplantation/oncology ID. Divisional clinical investigators also make use of the Weill Cornell Clinical and Translational Sciences Center, a multi-institutional research consortium that includes Cornell University, Ithaca; the Hospital for Special Surgery; the Hunter College School of Nursing; Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and New York Presbyterian Hospital.

The Center for Global Health research program includes laboratory and clinical research facilities in Brazil (HTLV-1, leishmaniasis, leprosy) and Haiti (HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis) as well as clinical research in India (leishmaniasis, tuberculosis) and Tanzania (HIV/AIDS, schistosomiasis). Division faculty and fellows conduct research at each site.
