Institute of Infection and Global Health

The Institute of Infection and Global Health based at the University of Liverpool was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

The Institute studies the clinical, biological and epidemiological aspects of infectious disease, along with the wider health implications for human society and animal welfare.

It also integrates medical and veterinary research to enhance exchange of knowledge and skills. The Institute's research is built around four themes: tackling infectious diseases of adults and chidlren; enhancing food safety and food security; tracking emerging zoonotic infections; and improving the health of pets.
