The overarching aim of this HPRU is to support and strengthen PHE in its role of protecting England from emerging and zoonotic infections. By bringing together internationally leading researchers at the University of Liverpool (UoL), Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and PHE, we will exploit the synergy, world-class facilities, and breadth and depth in relevant research between these institutions.
