Edinburgh Infectious Diseases
Edinburgh Infectious Diseases

How we are organised

Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is made up of members from all three colleges of the University of Edinburgh and from associated centres in other research and clinical institutions.

Members of Edinburgh Infectious Diseases come from across the spectrum of infectious disease research, from social science to basic and clinical science for human and animals.
 
While most Edinburgh Infectious Diseases members are based at one of the three larger sites (King's Buildings, Little France and the Roslin Institute), significant numbers are located at other centres including the Western General Hospital, Teviot Place and associated organisations such as the Moredun Institute, and Edinburgh Napier and Heriot Watt Universities. 
 
Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is funded directly by contributions from the University of Edinburgh, is run by an Executive Committee drawn from across the various sites, and administered by a full time Executive Manager.
