The APPRISE Centre of Research Excellence is developing research to inform Australia’s emergency response to infectious diseases
Our work impacts both children and adults and focuses on working with populations who are potentially at higher risk of infectious diseases. These communities include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, refugees and other socially vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.
APPRISE CRE works on a range of high-impact infectious diseases
- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV)
- Middle East Respiratory Coronavirus (MERS-CoV)
- haemorrhagic viruses including Ebola virus (EBOV)
- vector-borne pathogens including arboviruses such as Zika virus
- bacterial diseases such as Meningococcal W disease
- animal pathogens of relevance to humans.
