Help us achieve our goals

No other institute can bring such specialist capability and collaboration to the study of emerging infections of pandemic potential, with practical solutions rooted in local, national and international communities. By working before, during and after the emergence of a new threat, we can share insights and innovations faster than ever before and enable the joined-up thinking that is so vital for our future safety.
