During an infectious disease emergency, APPRISE will coordinate effective research to inform Australia’s response.
Example response activities:
- develop diagnostic tests for new and emerging infections
- ensure appropriate diagnostic tests can be used in remote locations
- begin clinical trials for new treatments and vaccines
- facilitate effective sharing and analysis of research data, working closely with Australian and jurisdictional governments
- collect and store samples from people affected by an infectious disease to understand clinical severity and treatment responses (biobanking)
- clearly communicate research findings to our diverse stakeholders.
