CIDM-Centre for Infectious diseases and microbiology

CIDM Public Health website

Welcome to the CIDM Public Health website. The Centre is a large public health and diagnostic microbiology laboratory affiliated with Sydney Medical School, The University of Sydney and Marie Bashir Institute. Our primary aims are to advance laboratory based surveillance and to improve prevention strategies, management and control of communicable diseases.


We are undertaking research to improve laboratory and epidemiological investigations of communicable diseases, the causative agents and their vectors. Our scientists work with a broad range of viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens. Sophisticated epidemiological tools that can accurately predict the behaviour and modes of transmission of microbial pathogens and identify sources are also being developed, along with education and training programmes.

Do take some time to find out more about our activities and achievements, and feel free to contact us for any further information.
