tropical and emerging infectious diseases division The north of Australia may be a tropical paradise, but it also boasts some of the deadliest creatures in the world and its climate provides a fertile breeding ground for many tropical infectious diseases. The Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases Division at Menzies is world renowned for its pioneering work in preventing and treating tropical infections and life threatening stings and bites and tracing the natural history of microscopic and macroscopic killers. Our state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and methods are used to unravel the mysteries of infectious diseases in our region and to guard against new and expanding threats to our health in the light of environmental challenges such as climate change. 51Tropical and Emerging Infectious Diseases Division
