Research Areas

AID undertakes research on parasite, viral, bacterial and fungal infectious diseases, and brings together basic sciences, clinical research and technological expertise where both UQ and QIMR have strengths.


The capacity to detect microbial pathogens in patients is the first step in the treatment of infectious disease treatment.

We will use the full range of technological platforms available within AID to develop accurate and rapid diagnostic tests for the identification of viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic pathogens.
