Research Description
The Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health seeks to nurture faculty, staff, and student interests in global partnerships for research, teaching, and service. Dr. Vermund's research interests lie in infectious disease control and prevention with a focus on developing countries and underserved areas of the southeastern U.S. Dr. Vermund's current (2007) funded grants include projects in Mozambique (PEPFAR-HIV care and treatment in Zambezia Province, via CDC), Zambia HIV/AIDS/STD/TB-related training (AITRP, via Fogarty/NIH), Pakistan/Bangladesh/India (HIV risk reduction in adolescent drug users, cervical cancer screening among HIV-infected women, HIV/AIDS/STD/TB-related training), and China (HIV/AIDS/STD/TB-related training, HIV/AIDS epidemic modeling, HIV incidence surveillance and BED-CEIA validation). He also has strong ties in Peru (clinical tropical medicine), Jamaica (public health training), Jordan (pediatric respiratory disease surveillance), and Costa Rica (ethics training). Dr. Vermund works closely with the Vanderbilt-Meharry Center for AIDS Research, the V.U. Program in Medicine, Society, and Health, the Center for Epidemiology, and the Institute for Medicine and Public Health. He serves PI of a Family Health International (Research Triangle Park, NC)-Vanderbilt grant for the HIV Prevention Trials Network Leadership Group sponsored by the NIAID and collaborating NIH institutes. Dr. Vermund also spearheads the Vanderbilt-Meharry Global Framework Program to develop global health training and curricular content throughout the curricula of both institutions.
