The Department of Oral Immunology and Infectious Diseases is involved primarily in studying the effects of bacteria on the host and how these local, oral effects may influence systemic health.
This department conducts fundamental and applied research on cellular and molecular aspects of embryonic development and acquired congenital malformations, as well as protein expression and trafficking. It is also home to the University of Louisville Birth Defects Center.
