The MORU Tropical Health Network's microbiology and non-malaria research focuses on: melioidosis, scrub typhus and other rickettsial infections; antimicrobial resistance; leptospirosis; the epidemiology of infectious diseases; sepsis and severe sepsis; the evaluation of diagnostic tests; and the immunology and cell biology of infectious diseases.

We conduct research into clinical and laboratory aspects of bacterial and viral illnesses, and aim to be a leader for a prospective AMR surveillance system for low and middle-income countries, and a global leader for melioidosis and rickettsioses. We engage with policy makers, healthcare providers and the public, seeking to influence policy changes for better surveillance, diagnosis, treatment and prevention for those diseases.
