INFECTIONS`21 -Transmission Control of Infections in the 21th Century

Improved hygiene and better prevention and treatment have reduced the incidence of infectious diseases particularly in industrialised countries. However, increasing antibiotic resistance, the emergence of new pathogens together with changes in pathogen distribution due to altered climateand mobility are global challenges for humankind. Infectious diseases can be spread and transferred to humans in many ways. A holistic approach is required to better understand pathogen transmission and to achieve improved infection control strategies. Biomedical, ecological, socio-economic and political aspects all need to be considered. The Leibniz Research Alliance “INFECTIONS´21” aims to establish an interdisciplinary research agenda and opens up new avenues of communication across disciplines. New strategies and methods for early warning and outbreak management systems will be developed to control spread of pathogens. This effort will also include public involvement through citizen science projects.
