Infectious diseases - diseases caused by the transmission of micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungal infections and prions - are a threat to inhabitants of industrialized nations and developing nations alike.

Researchers estimate that, of the 50 to 60 million people dying worldwide, nearly one‑third are lost to infectious diseases. Consequently, it is no surprise that infectology - the science of understanding infections - has become a subject of critical importance, and there is no doubt that multidisciplinary, integrated approaches are required to fight this epidemic.

For this reason, the FINOVI foundation is building a research strategy around 3 pathology types:

  • hepatitis
  • respiratory infections
  • nosocomial diseases

Its goal is to strengthen research teams to contribute to the development of new therapeutic and preventative solutions against infectious diseases.
