Globally, respiratory infections are the number one cause of death. Our areas of research in the University of Louisville Department of Medicine Global Health Initiative include respiratory infections as well as other pressing world-wide health problems.

These areas of research have been funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, and industry.

In addition, members of the Department of Medicine Global Health Initiative have more than 200 peer-reviewed publications in these areas of research.
