Administration

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is administratively light-touch, with a small Executive Committee that meets monthly and a Strategic Board that convenes once or twice per year.  Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is facilitated by a full-time manager, and supported by an administrative assistant, who also maintain the external website and our intranet.

The Edinburgh Infectious Diseases office is at the Ashworth Laboratories, King's Buildings, Charlotte Auerbach Road, Edinburgh EH9 3FL. For further information please contact eid@ed.ac.uk or:
