The Institute draws from the University’s diverse expertise to incorporate complex skill sets, from epidemiology, mathematical modelling, medicine, evolutionary biology, social sciences, pharmacy, management, engineering, to health economics and many other disciplines to address the multidimensional challenges of pandemics. We emphasize transdisciplinary research and foster cross-disciplinary learning to equip our future health leaders with broad-based knowledge and a holistic approach to tackle pandemics.
The Institute seeks to transform pandemic research and training by focusing on three cross-cutting themes:
- Pandemic Readiness
- Pandemic Resilience
- Pandemic Recovery
