LIDC facilitates and co-ordinates interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral approaches to address the existing and potential risks that originate at the animal-human-ecosystems interface.
We explore the wide range of drivers important to emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases for human, livestock and wildlife populations from the pathogen to the systems level.
The ‘UKRI GCRF Action against Stunting Hub’ is an interdisciplinary team comprising researchers from 18 institutions. Running for a five-year period from March 2019 – March 2024, the Hub aims to transform current research on child undernutrition or stunting. The team proposes to change the focus of investigation of child undernutrition from individual components of the problem to the ‘whole child’. Through this, we aim to understand the biological, social, environmental and behavioural context in which stunting occurs.
