What’s New: Prevention Epicenter Research

The CDC funded Prevention Epicenters are dedicated to advancing prevention research by working collaboratively with academic partners to create new knowledge that leads to the prevention of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and other adverse health outcomes.

New Prevention Epicenters Named

In 2015, CDC expanded the program to include 11 Prevention Epicenters. This expansion will enhance the capacity to find innovative strategies to protect patients by stopping spread of germs in healthcare facilities, including Ebola virus and other important infectious disease threats. This expansion was made possible by awarding $11 million to six additional academic institutions to join the CDC PE Program. These institutions will focus on preventing spread of germs during interactions between healthcare workers, patients, personal protective equipment, and the healthcare environment, enabling doctors and nurses to better protect the health and safety of their patients.

Research Presentations at ID Week

Each year, Prevention Epicenter researchers present their findings at scientific meetings, including ID Week. To learn more about the presentations this year, visit ID Week Presentations.
