Epidemiology

Focusing on infections and infectious diseases at the population level

The Epidemiology cluster focuses its work about infections and infectious diseases at the population level. We study the distribution of, and factors affecting, infections and disease in time, place and person (or animal), and the effects of interventions for prevention and control. We use a wide range of methods for study design and analysis, including field epidemiology, biostatistics, mathematical modelling and genomic epidemiology.
