GCEID combines the unique and world-class research facilities and people located in Geelong to create a “One Health” EID collaboration.
CSIRO – Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL)
AAHL’s high-containment purpose-built facility is one of the most sophisticated laboratory centres in the world, enabling ground breaking research into new vaccines, anti-viral therapeutics and the development of new ways to tackle the transmission of infectious diseases.
Research staff from broad backgrounds including human health microbiologists, wildlife experts, epidemiologists, bio-informaticians, ecologists, economists and social scientists combine to support a ‘One Health’ approach to infectious disease research, education and training.
Barwon Health has a considerable clinical research program involving infectious diseases. With an extensive outreach program, a focus on rural health and the development of decentralised health services, Barwon Health offers a unique “health services” component to the GCEID partnership.
