The founding of CTMID in 2011 was lead by Dr. Afzal Siddiqui. Since its inception, CTMID has grown into a research powerhouse, currently encompassing active grants of over $15 million. The center was established with the intent of creating an environment for enhanced research and training on a wide variety of infectious diseases caused by pathogens. Faculty and staff comprising the CTMID work to expand personal research and collaborations, while simultaneously providing hands-on training of MD, MS/PhD-graduate students and MD-fellows in infectious diseases and tropical medicine of public health importance.
