RESEARCH

 

 

With research expertise in 11 different thematic areas, the CeZAP affiliated faculty tackle comprehensive and complex problems in infectious diseases through interdisciplinary team approaches including engineering, social, biomedical, veterinary, medical, and plant sciences.

The CeZAP faculty conducts basic and mechanistic research in infectious diseases, and strives to translate into tangible results such as vaccines, antimicrobial drugs, intelligent infrastructure, and diagnostics that benefit the global society.

Through pilot grant programs, CeZAP promotes cross-disciplinary and new scientific collaborations to position Virginia Tech to become more competitive in acquiring large federally-funded center, program, and training grants.

    Interdisciplinary Team-Building Pilot Grants

    The Center for Emerging, Zoonotic, and Arthropod-borne Pathogens (CeZAP) at Virginia Tech requests pilot grant applications to build interdisciplinary research teams in the broad area of infectious diseases, leading to collaborative extramural grant submissions. These pilot grants are supported financially by Fralin Life Sciences Institute and Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. Priority will be given to proposals seeking to advance CeZAP’s mission to promote and foster interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research collaborations across different colleges.
