  • Serosurveys eg measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, pneumococcal, HPV
  • Technology: e.g. techniques for rapid diagnosis and molecular epidemiology
  • Evaluation of new platforms eg MesoScale Discovery Quickplex
  • Public health microbiology: e.g. collaborative projects on meningococcal infections and gastrointestinal infections
