All CIHMID events will be held virtually during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please check for updates, and direct any/all questions to CIHMID@cornell.edu.
Founded in 2017, the Cornell Institute of Host-Microbe Interactions and Disease, CIHMID, is a “virtual institute” at Cornell, spanning multiple departments in several colleges. CIHMID provides an umbrella structure to promote and support innovative research in host-microbe biology at Cornell.
Research within CIHMID may be fundamental or may be translationally applied in clinical, veterinary and agricultural contexts. Our research approaches are mechanistic as well as evolutionary and ecological. Our hosts include plants and animals. Our microbes are bacterial, viral, and fungal. In some cases, the interactions are pathogenic. In others, they are beneficial. And in many cases, they are conditional along the mutualistic-commensal-pathogenic continuum.
