MP3 Initiative: Molecules and Pathogens to Populations and Pandemics

The MP3 Initiative takes a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary approach to the threat of emerging and reemerging infectious diseases, cutting across "scales" of research, beginning with studies of the host-pathogen interaction, then defining novel targets for drugs and vaccines, and ultimately optimizing implementation of new preventive and therapeutic interventions.

MP3 Funding Opportunities

The MP3 Initiative also works closely with the NIAID (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) funded IDASTP (Infectious Disease Across Scales Training Program) which provides support for pre-doctoral students working in the infectious disease across scales field.


Both the MP3 Initiative and IDASTP collaborate to host two annual events brining visiting experts, Emory faculty/postdocs and IDASTP students in the field to discuss infectious disease research and the across scales approach:  

IDAS Symposium in the fall of each year.  (For 2022, Sympsoium will be combined with EEID 2022 Workshop and Conference June 4 - 9, 2021)

IDASTP Seminar Series in the spring of each year.
