III Strategic Aims

Find out about the III Strategic Aims

  • Molecular basis of immunological and inflammatory disease: to apply high-throughput genetics and systematic deep phenotyping of patients.

  • Basic immunological mechanisms: to experiment with informative model systems and study of immunological development and function in children.

  • Pathogen action: to understand molecular mechanisms of pathogen action through study of microbial genetics and host response to challenge.

  • Disease prevention: to develop effective methods to enhance disease diagnosis in early childhood and utilise effective vaccination strategies.

  • World-leading translational research: to undertake innovative clinical trials in children with immunological and inflammatory diseases using novel biologic agents, and cell and gene therapies.

  • Respiratory disease and intensive care: to improve the understanding of early determinants of lung disease in children, including critical care physiology, and development novel therapeutic and management strategies.

  • Teaching and education: to develop a world class education platform for health professionals and lay public.
