Research Centres and partners
We excel at developing interdisciplinary teams, and work with a broad range of partners within the College, elsewhere in the University and around the world. Some of our local partners include:
- The Boyd Orr Centre for Population and Ecosystem Health
- Glasgow Ageing Research Network (GARNER)
- The Wellcome Trust Centre for Molecular Parasitology
- University of Glasgow - Medical Research Council Centre for Virus Research
- Glasgow Sustainable Development Network (GCID)
- Glasgow Centre for International Development
- Scottish Centre for Production Animal Health & Food Safety
The Institute also hosts a number of external research groups and organisations with whom we collaborate:
Our external partners include the Moredun Research Institute and the Pirbright Institute, with whom we have long standing relationships and share several senior staff appointments. We also have strong research links with many other research organisations both within Scotland (e.g. Marine Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the James Hutton Institute, and MASTS research network) and further afield.
We also participate in the multi-institutional Scottish Government funded centre of expertise for animal disease outbreaks, EPIC (Epidemiology, Population health and Infectious disease Control), the purpose of which is to develop the best available scientific advice to inform government policy on reducing the impact of animal disease outbreaks.
Partners in Africa
A significant portion of our work takes place in sub-Saharan Africa, where we play a leading role in the Wellcome Trust-funded consortium Afrique One, which aims to strengthen and build research capacity, specifically in zoonotic diseases, in African regional institutions. In particular, our partners in Tanzania include:
- The Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science & Technology
- Tanzanian Wildlife Research Institute
- Ifakara Health Institute
With these partners we also collaborate with the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, based at Washington State University.
