Translating Research into Highest Quality Patient Care

Institute of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology (IIDE)

The Institute of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology (IIDE) is a result of the integration of 3 entities with synergistic and complementary roles: the Communicable Disease Centre (CDC), Department of Infectious Diseases (DID) and Department of Clinical Epidemiology (DCE). IIDE provides an excellent platform for the seamless integration of clinical service and academic inquiry.

Within the Institute of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology (IIDE), the IIDE Research Unit focuses on building and supporting research capabilities to strengthen our research activities, so as to increase the translational impact of our research, and to pursue more evidence-based clinical management and therapies.

We aim to be a national leader in infectious diseases research.


We aim to build a collaborative framework that encourages clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, epidemiologists, statisticians, virologists, immunologists and molecular scientists, to work closely together, to provide a comprehensive understanding of infectious diseases of concern in Singapore and Asia.


We aim to improve prevention by early diagnosis and prognosis, to advance clinical intervention and to enhance patient care and outcomes.


We welcome and are working on regional and international partnerships and collaborations in the prevention and control of infectious diseases.
