UNSW Vaccine & Infection Research Lab (UNSW-VIRL)
The launch of UNSW VIRL will be a one-off unveiling, curated by Professor Raina MacIntyre, Head of School and program lead for the elderly vaccines program.
We are expecting a fantastic audience to attend the event, including academic experts, policy makers and national and NSW media. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and action – and provoke conversations that matter about adult vaccinations.
Our Mission statement
To reduce the immunisation gap between adults and children through research, teaching and advocacy, with a special focus on the elderly, high risk and vulnerable populations.
Who we are
We are a group of academic researchers based at SPHCM UNSW, who are recognised international leaders in immunisation and vaccinology research. Our primary area of focus is adult and high risk group immunisation, with a focus on vulnerable populations including the elderly, migrants, refugees, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, immunosuppressed people and health workers. Our research expertise spans clinical trials, epidemiology, mathematical modelling, health economics, big data and data linkage, social and behavioural research, as well as policy and evaluation. We engage in research, advocacy and teaching, with several options for higher studies in infectious diseases and vaccinology.
