The Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology (IDE) conducts research on the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases of public health importance. We also conduct research on maternal and neonatal health. Work is carried out in low, middle and high income countries, including the United Kingdom. Research ranges from ecological studies of variations in disease frequency in different populations, through observational case-control and cohort studies to define risk factors for disease, to randomised controlled trials to test the impact of specific preventive and curative interventions. We also have an active research degree training programme (PhD, DrPH).
Publications by department staff can be viewed in the School’s online repository.
