Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection

The Center for Microbial Dynamics and Infection (CMDI) is an interdisciplinary collaboration at Georgia Tech seeking to understand the ecology, interactions and evolution of microbes. We are focused on the understanding microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions that are relevant to human health, ecosystem dynamics and sustainability. Our research affiliates specialize in: Microbial Ecology, Sociomicrobiology, Infection Dynamics, Host-pathogen interactions, Marine Microbiology, Microbial Evolution, Spatial structure in microbiology, Cystic Fibrosis pathogens, and Viral Ecology.
