Project Details


The Centre of Research Excellence in Protecting the Public from Emerging Infectious Diseases (CREID) aims to create a vibrant, multidisciplinary community of researchers, linked with public health laboratories and government agencies, working together to safeguard Australia and our region from emerging infectious disease threats.

Our vision is to improve public health outcomes by incorporating state-of-the-art, high-throughput and digital technologies into EID risk prediction and responses and developing an enabling practice and policy framework grounded in ethics research.

Our team of investigators from New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia and the ACT has a proven track record in collaborative development and translation of new technologies into public health practice, intelligent use of rapid communication platforms, and infectious diseases ethics research. Our bi-directional engagement with key stakeholders – policy makers, end-users and the wider community – provides a pipeline for effective dissemination and translation of research findings into policy and practice.
