Research includes a broad range of areas related to infectious diseases of veterinary and public health importance. These include diseases caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites or viruses.
Our research focuses particularly on the mechanisms of disease development and diagnosis. This includes infectious diseases, cancer, toxicities, nutritional diseases, and genetic diseases.
We use radioimmunoassay and ELISA methods to measure hormones and other biological compounds for commercial clients, in collaborative research projects, and for student and staff projects.
Massey University has three main groups focusing on epidemiological research and studies. These are the EpiCentre, mEpiLab and Infectious Diseases Research Centre.
