Massey University has three main groups focusing on epidemiological research and studies. These are the EpiCentre, mEpiLab and Infectious Diseases Research Centre. The three centres work together to progress the understanding of patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations.
The EpiCentre and mEpiLab are recognised as World Assembly of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Collaborating Centres for Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health. They are the only centres to be recognised as such in the Asia Pacific.
The Infectious Disease Research Centre works on research that contributes to better health for New Zealanders. Our work aims to find ways of decreasing the economic burden from infectious disease, improving biosecurity, reducing our impact on the environment, sustaining New Zealand's access to export markets and training the next generation of skilled biomedical research scientists.
The EpiCentre is the largest veterinary epidemiology training and research centre in Australasia.
The Centre use epidemiologic methods to understand and control diseases in animal populations, the transmission of disease from animals to humans, and hazards in food of animal origin.
