Our group aims to improve the health of people and places by studying the interaction between the environment and human health. This includes studies of blood-feeding insects and the viruses they carry, the epidemiology of infectious disease, and how animals adapt to survive in a changing climate. Our group works closely with government, industry, and other laboratories both in Australia and internationally. The group’s overarching interest is in the intersection between environmental and public health.
Healthy Environments, Healthy People is now a part of the larger Centre for Population Health Research. Our group is mainly based at City East campus but has a presence on Level 8 in the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).
