Infection, immunity, inflammation

Our Infection, Immunity and Inflammation research theme (3Is) brings together laboratory scientists, clinicians and practitioners to link our biomedical research with clinical and public / environmental health applications.

Driven by a strong collaborative, interdisciplinary approach this research focuses on answering complex questions and global health challenges in the areas of liver disease, innate immunity, pollution and health, bacterial pathogens and antibiotic resistance, vaccine development and oral health and disease.

This research aims to deliver impact and patient / public benefit through:

  • development of improved diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for infectious disease and other conditions
  • new approaches for the treatment and prevention of inflammatory conditions
  • novel detection technologies for use in public and environmental health.

Infection, immunity and inflammation research forms part of our Clinician led medical research, Public health and Oral health & disease research

Delivery of our research and work with external partners is facilitated by our:
