Organisation profile

The Infection and Immunity Research Network (I&I), which is supported by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, acts as a cross-faculty conduit for the sharing and promotion of research relating to all and any aspects of infection and immunity, and seeks to provide strategic focus for research activities across the wider community.

Network members study the immune system in health and illness and the cause, spread, treatment and prevention of infectious disease. Our research stretches from emerging infections, that can be spread around the world by modern travel or by environmental change, to chronic inflammatory conditions that consume the resources of first-world economies. We study resistance to antimicrobial treatment, the development of effective vaccination and the potential social implications of these public health measures.

Our research seeks to provide solutions with immediate relevance to modern demands.
