Pediatric Infectious Disease


Pediatric infectious disease and immunology experts at University of Minnesota Physicians and University of Minnesota Children's Hospital provide leading-edge treatments to children who have serious infections or unusual susceptibility to infections. Many of our treatments are the result of extensive research that we conduct through our Center for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology Translational Research.

Our infectious-disease physicians also participate in the Collaborate Antiviral Study Group, a multi-institutional network that conducts clinical trials on therapies for viral infections.
