Chronic diseases and disorders affect the quality of life of billions worldwide.
Encompassing illness and disabilities of infectious and non-infectious (including mental health) origin, the study of chronic diseases and disorders transcends many of the traditional boundaries of science and medicine. Our research ranges from fundamental aspects of pathogen biology through translational work in vaccine and drug development, to health services, social science and environmental research. Research in medical history and the Humanities gives us new insights into the origins and impact of disease, and the study of cultural artefacts (e.g. art, poetry) provides valuable insights into our past.
