Promoting Innovation Through Collaboration
Research and training focused on diagnosis, treatment, prevention and clinical management of infectious disease, cancer, and metabolic and genetic disorders.
The Drexel University College of Medicine Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease is a collaborative inter-campus enterprise focused on research, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and clinical management of infectious disease, cancer, and metabolic and genetic disorders.
The institute guides the development of collaborative research programs that will be competitive for extramural research and training support. The institute also provides an organized framework to guide the development of inter-campus, inter-college and inter-unit research initiatives across the College.

JUNE 1, 2017
CD4 HunterTM, the first educational mobile game app developed by the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease is available. FREE download at Apple and Google Play App Stores. Watch the CD4 Hunter trailer.
CD4 HunterTM combines fast-paced game play with science learning to showcase the first step of the complex and dynamic replication cycle of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1): binding and attachment. The app will be available for free download on Apple and Google Play app stores on June 1 and will be presented at Microbe 2017, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) held in New Orleans, June 1-5, 2017. CD4 Hunter was developed “in house” by the Center for Business and Program Development of the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease (IMMID), at Drexel University College of Medicine.
