  • Collaborative Research Initiative for Communicable Diseases

    The Collaboration for Research In Communicable Diseases (CRIC) (D. Konkle-Parker, director) is an initiative to provide a platform for researchers from multiple departments and institutions to focus on research to decrease the disproportionate impact of communicable diseases in populations in Mississippi, especially HIV disease and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

    CRIC was founded in the Division of Infectious Diseases (ID) in 2010, and supported by the ID Division and the Office of Faculty Development. Quarterly presentations are offered to those interested in communicable diseases research, highlighting the various UMMC departments that are involved in associated research such as microbiology, infectious diseases, psychology, physiology and pediatrics, as well as other institutions: Jackson State University, Mississippi State University and Mississippi Department of Health.
