Overview

The Infection and Global Health Research Division works in a wide range of fields that includes clinical trials, genetics, anti-microbial resistance, diagnostic tools, education and global health policy. 

Our research requires cross-disciplinary teamwork in many countries with the common aim of improving health care in low resource settings. We consequently have ongoing initiatives nationally and internationally with particularly strong links in East Africa and Indonesia.
