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.

Host-pathogen interactions

The examination of the interaction between infectious disease agents and the human host is an area of significant expertise within AID.

We will utilise this expertise in the examination of specific host-pathogen interactions, and extend this research to understand the role of the host immune system in the prevention or development of infectious diseases.
