We train tomorrow's physicians, investigate the pathogenesis, treatment and prevention of an array of infectious diseases and provide excellent care for the Buffalo area.

We offer excellent training and research opportunities with nationally and internationally recognized experts in our fellowship program. Our translational research programs contribute to the treatment and prevention of an array of infectious diseases. And our faculty provide important clinical care in the area's major hospitals.

Our faculty are internationally-renowned researchers, well-respected clinicians and instructors who are repeatedly recognized with teaching awards.
We educate tomorrow’s physicians across the spectrum, from medical students to fellows.
We investigate the pathogenesis, treatment and prevention of an array of infectious diseases—translational research with the potential for broad public application.
