Interdisciplinary Infectious Disease Research

Sparking and sharing new knowledge to prevent, manage and treat infectious diseases worldwide.

Infectious diseases are a leading cause of mortality worldwide and a major threat to our food supply and natural resources—particularly with the emergence of new and invasive pathogens. As one of the World’s leading Universities, Cambridge and its partner institutes and industrial collaborators, are already known for academic excellence in infectious disease research and related fields, particularly in Medicine and Chemistry, where screening of large chemical libraries is leading to new developments in antimicrobial therapies. As an Interdisciplinary Research Centre Cambridge Infectious Diseases (CID) is working to capitalise on and extend this expertise by creating novel research through bridging disciplines working on infectious diseases.

Find out how our researchers are harnessing collaborative advantage and tackling the global grand research challenge of reducing the burden of infectious diseases by exploring Research Groups and Projects.
