Infectious disease is responsible for millions of deaths each year. Almost half of death occurs in the developing countries. Infectious diseases can threaten human to other illnesses throughout the rest of their lives. As emerging of new pathogens, and multidrug resistant strains of existing ones continue to be serious public health problem in all countries, Infectious diseases is a major concern for bacteriology and virology department at Isfahan University of Medical Sciences. At our department the students learn to progress knowledge related to human health and strategies for prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.

Established in1968 as the department of Pathobiology and in 1991 as department of Bacteriology and Virology.
