Fighting Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases

Focused on improving children's health through new multi-disciplinary collaborations, the Institute for Infection, Inflammation, and Immunity in Children (i4Kids) is a strategic initiative of Terence S. Dermody, MD, Vira I. Heinz Distinguished Professor and Chair of Pediatrics.

The i4Kids aims to become the epicenter of research, discovery, prevention, and treatment of these diseases in children as the foundation of improving the health of future generations.

We welcome the participation of anyone in the research or philanthropic communities interested in improving pediatric health through pilot grants, an annual symposium, a speaker series, and networking events to facilitate the formation of new cross-disciplinary collaborations.
