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: 

We also benefit from the broad diversity of multidisciplinary networks, centres and institutes already established at the College, including: 

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.
