Centre for Perinatal Infection Research

Infections passed from mother to child around the time of birth are important causes of disability in early life. We aim to reduce the impact of perinatal viral infections and (re)emerging infectious diseases on infants and children. Through understanding these infections better, we will find new ways to prevent or treat them.

The Centre for Perinatal Infection Research (CPIR) is based at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and led by Professor Cheryl Jones.  We are part of the Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity and two NHMRC Centres for Research Excellence - Critical infections and Immunisation in under studied and special risk populations.
