The Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Program (IGEP) in Infectious Disease (ID), in collaboration with academic departments and programs, trains graduate students to acquire a broad scientific perspective towards infectious disease. The program provides:

  • a cohesive, yet diverse learning environment valuing multiple viewpoints
  • cutting edge transdisciplinary research
  • rich educational experiences with infectious disease specific coursework and seminars
  • professional development opportunities
  • realization of the Virginia Tech motto of Ut Prosim (that we may serve) in the form of service to society through focus on real-world infectious disease problems.

Funded by the six participating colleges and other Virginia Tech entities, this program is one of several IGEPs. These programs address a variety of complex societal issues requiring interdisciplinary teams of scholars.
