UGA's Center for Tropical & Emerging Global Diseases (CTEGD) is built on a strong foundation in parasitology, immunology, cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics. CTEGD maintains close connection with the Division of Parasitic Diseases at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Emory Vaccine Center. Researchers at CTEGD study the immunology of schistosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis, metabolic pathways of trypanosomatids and malaria parasites, and mechanisms of action of and modes of resistance to anthelmintics, among many other topics.
