  Burroughs Wellcome Fund:Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease

Five-year awards provide $500,000 to support accomplished investigators at the assistant professor level to study pathogenesis, with a focus on the interplay between human and microbial biology, shedding light on how human and microbial systems are affected by their encounters.
