VI4 Home

Our Mission: To train the next generation of scientists and physicians and make fundamental discoveries in the areas of infection biology, immunology, and inflammation with the goal of increasing knowledge and improving human health.

VI4 strives to promote an inclusive environment that is supportive and enriching, regardless of the personal or scientific background, for its broad member base. We aim to build and sustain a diverse and vibrant community of investigators that nurtures rigorous education and training in microbiology and immunology within an environment that is welcoming to all.

We expect that all VI4 members, in keeping with VUMC’s CREDO behaviors, adhere to these same guiding principles.
