We are based jointly between the Institute of Infection and Global Health (IGH), University of Liverpool, and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), in Nairobi-Kenya, with a significant focus of research activity operating from our field laboratory in Western Kenya and other collaborating laboratories.

Our work applies a One Health approach to the study of zoonoses – infectious diseases that may be passed from animals to people. Through our research we try to understand how these diseases behave at the intersection between wildlife, livestock and human health.

Tip of the day

Aspergillosis is an infection caused by Aspergillus, a common mold (a type of fungus) that lives indoors and outdoors. Most people breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without getting sick. However, people with weakened immune systems or lung diseases are at a higher risk of developing health problems due to Aspergillus.
