Advancing our mission to catalyse research at the intersection between disciplines, the Institute of Infection community represents all four of Imperial’s faculties: the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering, and the Business School. The Institute draws directly from Imperial’s departments with longstanding expertise in infection, including:
- Department of Bioengineering
- Department of Chemical Engineering
- Department of Chemistry
- Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Department of Immunology and Inflammation
- Department of Infectious Disease
- Department of Life sciences
- Department of Materials
- National Heart and Lung Institute
- School of Public Health
We also benefit from the broad diversity of multidisciplinary networks, centres and institutes already established at the College, including:
- MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection (MRC CMBI)
- MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis (MRC GIDA)
- Jameel Institute
- Antimicrobial Research Collaborative
- Imperial Network for Vaccine Research
- Malaria Network
- Centre for Antimicrobial Optimisation (CAMO)
- NIHR Health Protection Research Units (Healthcare Associated Infections and AMR; Modelling and Health Economics; HPRU-Respiratory Infections)
Through the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and the Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC), we are directly linked to clinical partners, including Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, with whom we are aligned on plans to develop their new clinical infection centre.
Our community is open to anyone at Imperial College London who is interested in interdisciplinary infection research, whether you are an established infection researcher or someone looking to apply your expertise to infection-related challenges for the first time.
We are a collective of clinicians, engineers, scientists and communicators from all career stages (PhD students, postdocs, early career researchers and senior academics). Our community comes from across all of Imperial’s campuses and is united by a commitment to tackle global challenges posed by infection.
All members of College with an active or prospective interest in infection research – in all faculties, centres, networks, and institutes – are already considered part of the Institute of Infection community. If you would like to play a more active role and receive infection-focused information, funding opportunities, studentships, events, and news, please use the Sign up button to enter your contact details.
