Find out more from Prof Azra Ghani, Director of the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis, about our mission and vision.

The MRC Centre maintains close collaborative partnerships with public and global health agencies (notably the World Health Organization, where we are a Collaborating Centre for Infectious Disease Modelling), governments and non-governmental bodies across the world.

With over 200 researchers, we are one of the largest centres of our kind. This gives us a unique capacity to respond to emerging threats with real-time analysis and predictive modelling of epidemiological and genomic data – and to provide timely evidence-based input to urgent policy questions for major endemic diseases such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis. Much of our work is highly interdisciplinary, spanning epidemiology,  mathematical modelling, pathogen genomics, implementation science and health economics.
