Edinburgh Infectious Diseases


EID is the organisational hub for the extensive community of infectious disease scientists in Edinburgh: a large and diverse group with 550 research workers and graduate students and over 70 Principal Investigators.
Edinburgh now hosts one of the greatest critical masses in ID research in the UK and indeed globally, and EID provides the common platform to advance research, teaching and strategy in this crucial area of human and animal health.
With the growth of major new intiatives in infectious disease at Edinburgh, day-to-day research and teaching is implemented within specialised units in individual locations; EID thus focusses on long-range and strategic issues, and acts to ensure high-level collaboration and cohesion between basic, clinical and veterinary scientists, together with leaders in key disciplines such as genomics, genetics, immunology, cell biology and epidemiology.
EID's specific mission is to;
1. Represent the strengths of infectious disease science in Edinburgh through our symposia, workshops, outreach activity and internet profile;
2. Maintain a strategic overview of infectious disease research in Edinburgh, to maximise synergy between established activities and promote new avenues for investigation;
3. Foster infectious disease teaching and training at all levels within the University, including the development of new postgraduate intiatives.
