Titleimage: Multidisciplinary Center for Infectious Diseases (MCID)

The MCID is an interdisciplinary strategic center at the University of Bern dedicated to the study and mitigation of healthcare, societal, ethical, and economic risks from infectious diseases.

The MCID brings together high impact academic researchers with the aim of determining the origins of infectious disease risks, preparing for and managing these risks.

The launch of the MCID has been made possible through a generous donation by the Vinetum Foundation.

In 2021, the MCID launched its first call for project funding; 17 projects were selected for funding and are now running, working in collaboration with the MCID Core Activities. A second project funding call was launched in 2022 with 6 projects selected for funding due to begin in early 2023.
