Our mission is to improve the health of the community through immunisation and the prevention of infectious diseases.
We achieve this by leading national studies focusing on a range of diseases including influenza, pneumococcal, meningococcal, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and whooping cough
Our studies play a vital role in the development and evaluation of vaccines recommended for children and adults throughout Australia.
Your involvement in our research could help pave the way for a world-first RSV vaccine or longer-lasting protection against whooping cough.
