Research Themes

The overarching aim of this HPRU is to support and strengthen the UKHSA in its role protecting England from emerging and zoonotic infections and biological threats. By bringing together internationally leading researchers at the University of Liverpool (UoL), Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and the UKHSA, we will exploit the synergy, world-class facilities, and breadth and depth in relevant research between these institutions.

We will achieve this through five research themes:

  1. Patient Research for Public Health
  2. Diagnostics and Host Response
  3. Pathogen and Vector Biology
  4. Epidemiology and Risk Analysis
  5. Knowledge Mobilisation
