Epidemic response, control and prevention

Firefighters Decontaminate and triage victims

We conduct research in applied field epidemiology, outbreak response, on performances of deployed international health responders and barriers to deployment, rapid diagnostics, personal protective equipment, vaccines other interventions, and on engagement with response agencies. The ARM network and our links to key NGOs and other organisations involved in epidemic response facilitate this research. ISER contains the largest body of Australian expertise in field epidemiology and epidemic response.
