The MIEP team develops and disseminates user-friendly mathematical and computational models for studying human immunity to infection of vaccination. MIEP combines mathematical modeling and immunology experimentation to characterize the mechanisms of underlying immune responses to enteric pathogens. Models, data, and tools become seamlessly integrated in MIEP’s modeling platform to advance the development of novel host-targeted therapeutics.
The Center for Modeling Immunity to Enteric Pathogens (MIEP) is a NIAID-funded program within the Nutritional Immunology and Molecular Medicine Laboratory. Under the guidance of Dr. Bassaganya-Riera (Principal Investigator), MIEP’s mission is to understand the mechanisms of action underlying immune responses to enteric pathogens.

To comprehensively and systematically characterize mechanisms of action underlying infectious, metabolic and immune-mediated diseases; the NIMML will translate this new knowledge towards developing innovative therapeutics for human diseases that are safer and more effective.
To become a world-leading research laboratory in translational, personalized, predictive, participatory, and preventive medicine.
Integrity, creativity, efficiency, teamwork, confidentiality, customer-service orientation, loyalty, commitment, trust, attention to detail, and impeccable work ethics.
"Working in the NIMML lab this semester has been an amazing experience! As a Virginia Tech student you hear all about the ground breaking research that happens here but you do not really appreciate it until you spend time working in the lab. I have learned an enormous amount this semester and expanded my knowledge of molecular medicine."
