The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that academia can deliver transformative scientific advances with global impact. And, with sufficient determination and resources, we can radically accelerate the development and implementation of interventions that benefit humanity.
The Pandemic Sciences Institute (formerly Pandemic Sciences Centre) was established in 2021 as a multi-disciplinary, University-wide initiative to build upon the model of innovation, collaboration and agility that yielded critical breakthroughs for COVID-19.
Through academic excellence and equitable partnerships, we aim to safeguard health economic stability for future generations.
The PSI aspires to be distinguished by its scientific leadership, its ability to blend disciplines, its productive partnerships with academia, industry and public health organisations, its capacity for rapid decision-making and intervention, and its global perspective.
