Edinburgh Infectious Diseases brings together a number of organizations across Edinburgh to create strength in infectious disease science that can be harnessed for concerted and collaborative multidisciplinary research. Edinburgh Infectious Diseases undertakes a variety of knowledge-exchange and networking activities that include scientific symposia, workshops, outreach activity and internet profile. A Vaccine workshop was held in October 2014, bringing together researchers on human and animal diseases. Membership of the BBSRC UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network would provide a communication route to the scientists and organizations that are part of Edinburgh Infectious Diseases.
