About our department
The Department of Medical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (MMID) fulfils a central role in the Erasmus MC as an internationally recognized center for high-quality patient care, knowledge development and transfer in the field of medical microbiology and infectious diseases.
The Department of MMID of the Erasmus MC is an international center of excellence for multidisciplinary, translational and clinical research of microbial infections from molecular to population level. The adagio is ‘from bench to bedside and back’, with our expertise ranging from fundamental knowledge on pathogenic microbes to the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. By combining the complementary areas of expertise within our department, we aim to provide solutions for today’s problems in infectious diseases, such as combatting emerging antimicrobial resistance, as well as for tomorrow's challenges caused by microbial pathogens.
Research is mainly clustered into two Erasmus MC Academic Centers (AC; which are a network for multidisciplinary research): Antimicrobial Resistance, Therapeutics and molecular Epidemiology (ARTE) Migratory Health & Neglected Tropical Diseases (MH & NTD) Within these AC research clusters multiple research lines exist.
