WIDER (Warwick Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research) centre is a cross-department, interdisciplinary group who focus on understanding and predicting the spread and control of many infectious diseases. Our research spans from high profile pathogens including pandemic influenza, malaria, bovine tuberculosis and foot-and-mouth disease, to less well-publicised diseases such as respiratory syncytical virus, foot-rot and European foulbrood.
We use a range of scientific techniques from mathematical models and statistical analysis to field experiments and questionnaires, which together provide a more holistic picture of the transmission of infection and the likely impact of control.
