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

COVID-19 has disrupted nearly every aspect of life as we know it, from education to the economy, work and worship, families and friends. As individuals, families and communities, we share the hope that we will soon have effective treatments for, and ultimately prevention of, this disease so the people who matter most to us can resume their lives and thrive. In this unprecedented time, we are reminded of the significance of a research university in a healthy, vibrant society. At the University of Utah, at least 100 research groups are currently studying causes and consequences of COVID-19. Virtually every entity at the U. is involved, including undergraduate students and staff who are assisting in and supporting research projects while working remotely.... Read MoreSelect...
COVID-19 is unlikely to be spread through semen, according to University of Utah Health scientists who participated in an international study of Chinese men who recently had the disease.
