Review for Center for Infectious Disease Research, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the only research center totally focused on critical infectious diseases such as Malaria, Tuberculosis, and HIV, the Center for infectious Disease Research deserve our support. Literally 2/3rds of the world is infected with one of these diseases. And, given global warming and travel, TB and Malaria could be coming to the US soon. Dr. Alan Aderem who head up the Center for Infectious Disease Research was born in South Africa, was imprisoned under apartheid, and has a special personal affinity for diseases which are ravaging Africa. You may think that the Center would be totally funded by folks like the Gates Foundation but you would be wrong. It needs your philanthropic support.
