About this theme

In this workstream we undertake epidemiological studies and develop and consolidate laboratory tools for the study of infectious diseases and their transmission to support the evaluation of health protection interventions.

Research areas

We conduct studies on carriage epidemiology, including density, to ensure that evaluations of vaccines are appropriately designed and can be correctly interpreted.
