Australian Infectious Diseases Research Centre (AID)

Mosquito on skin - Australian Infectious Diseases Research Centre

The University of Queensland and QIMR Berghofer

The Australian Infectious Diseases Research Centre (AID) combines complementary research housed at QIMR Berghofer Institute and UQ in partnership, in order to support a coordinated infectious diseases research focus. This combined research effort in parasite, viral, bacterial and fungal infectious diseases brings together basic sciences, clinical research and technological expertise. Our strategic objective is to build AID into a world-class centre for infectious disease research. AID will accelerate translational outcomes in diagnostics, vaccine development, and the design and application of new therapeutics against microbial pathogens.
