Center for Women’s Infectious Disease Research
The Center for Women’s Infectious Disease Research (cWIDR, pronounced “see-wider”) is investigating common, but often overlooked infections that differentially affect women and man by building a new, innovative field at the intersection of women’s health, microbiology, immunology and infectious diseases.
