Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by microbes such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites that spread between humans, animals and the environment

The Infection & Immunity Network collaborates around three core areas: pathogen emergence and spread, antimicrobial resistance and novel therapies, and vaccines and immunity. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates the importance of this work.

An immediate priority for the network is to establish a clinical vaccine trials platform in NSW, so that when new vaccines become available, we can rapidly test them to assess how they work in an Australian context.
