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.
