National Centre for Immunisation Research & Surveillance

The National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) aims to inform policy and planning for immunisation services in Australia and to support initiatives in the surveillance of vaccine preventable diseases, including disease surveillance, vaccine coverage and immunisation adverse events.

Led by NCIRS Director Professor Kristine Macartney, we conduct an extensive program of clinical trials and epidemiologic research, bringing together a group of experts and postgraduate students in public health, paediatrics, internal medicine, infectious diseases, epidemiology and behavioural sciences.

Please email us at for general enquiries.

Information on vaccine preventable diseases, including our research, can also be found on the NCIRS website
