DIVISION OF IMMUNOLOGY & INFECTIOUS DISEASES

Welcome

Current Status

Formed in 2007, the Division of Immunology & Infectious Diseases fully supports the three missions of UTHSCSA and the Department of Pediatrics: education, clinical service, and research. We believe that generation and dissemination of new knowledge through the integration of these three missions is the key contribution of academic medicine to society.

The division is actively engaged in the teaching of medical students, Pediatrics residents, and subspecialty fellows, as well as participating in continuing medical education (CME) activities.

Division faculty provide comprehensive clinical service in the diagnosis and management of children with

  • infectious diseases
  • HIV/AIDS
  • primary immune deficiency disorders
  • allergic rhinitis, asthma and other types of hypersensitivity
  • rheumatology, including lupus, arthritis and related conditions

Research activities span the spectrum from basic and translational research to clinical research and clinical trials. Please refer to specific programs and faculty web pages for additional details.

Future Plans      
Our vision of the future is to provide comprehensive education and training, outstanding clinical care, and to be actively involved in research, in all aspects of immunology, allergy, rheumatology and infectious diseases in children. In cooperation with CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, we are planning to add a board certified pediatric rheumatologist to our faculty.
