Our team includes prominent scientists who are engaged in both applied research concerning multihost pathogens and fundamental research regarding pathogen evolution and disease emergence. The disciplines within the group cover the spectrum of population-based infectious disease from microbiology, through population genetics, epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, disease ecology, statistics, mathematical modelling, and public health.
Our goal is to become an integral part of New Zealand's core capability for infectious disease management, and the research we carry out aims to contribute towards:
- Better health for New Zealanders.
- Decreasing the economic burden from infectious disease.
- Improving border and post-border Biosecurity.
- Reducing our impact on the natural environment.
- Sustaining New Zealand's access to international export markets.
- Training the next generation of skilled biomedical research scientists.
