What is the Immunology, Inflammation, & Infectious Disease (3i) Initiative
The Immunology, Inflammation, and Infectious Disease (3i) Initiative at University of Utah Health was formally established in 2017 on the premise that a better understanding of the three "I"s will fundamentally change the way we think about disease.
The vision of the 3i Initiative at the University of Utah is to become a center of scientific excellence known internationally for its top-tier research performed at the nexus of the immunology, inflammation and infectious disease fields to make fundamental discoveries that ultimately improve patient care.
It is built on a strong foundation of almost 180

Researchers have identified a family of proteins that is significantly elevated in the saliva of patients hospitalized with COVID-19. The proteins, known as ephrin ligands, could potentially serve as a biomarker to help doctors identify patients who are at risk for serious illness.... Read MorePathology
A new study led by researchers at University of Utah Health details a novel mechanism that infectious bacteria use to quickly adjust to environmental stress. The discovery could help explain why certain types of common infections—such as urinary tract and bloodstream infections like sepsis—persist. ... Read MorePathology
