Avaliable language options:
Over history, countless pandemics have impacted the lives of millions of people. This risk remains very real. Our scientists are providing the knowledge, tools and countermeasures to help control and mitigate outbreaks of emerging diseases and are working to underpin national security preparedness against pandemic and bioterrorist threats.
Our scientists are world leaders in investigating zoonotic diseases - those that have the ability to pass between animals and people.
Our scientists are studying disease-carrying mosquitoes and other insects to understand what viruses they carry, how they develop immunity to the diseases they carry and how they transmit disease throughout the environment.
We use a range of scientific techniques and processes, including gene technology, as tools to help us in the fight against emerging animal diseases.
