Duke Scholars in Infectious Diseases Program Announces 2010-2011 Scholars

Durham, NC (April 2010) –The Duke Scholars in Infectious Diseases Program (DSID) is pleased to announce the Scholars for 2010-2011. The Scholars are pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows researching basic mechanisms related to infectious diseases, immunology, and microbial pathogenesis. Now entering its second year, the DSID program provides an opportunity for the program participants to gain first hand experience with problems in clinical infectious disease by rotating in the hospital with clinical Infectious Diseases teams, working through clinical problems in a case conference series, discussing clinical and translational research trials through a journal club, and discussing career paths in infectious diseases-related research with guest faculty who are nationally and internationally-recognized for their scientific contributions and for their translation of their work to the clinical arena.
