The EpiCentre at Massey University, New Zealand, is the largest veterinary epidemiology training and research centre in Australasia. It is widely considered to be one of the leading groups in the world.
The EpiCentre along with mEpiLab and China Animal Health and Epidemiology Center (CAHEC) have been recognised by the World Assembly of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) as a Collaborating Centre for Veterinary Epidemiology and Public Health.
We have expertise in the understanding and control of disease in animal populations, the transmission of disease from animals to humans, and hazards in food of animal origin. The group is distinguished by its commitment to long-term research goals and its innovative uses of epidemiological techniques in research and problem-solving.
Fields of research at the EpiCentre range from diseases of New Zealand livestock to those of global importance such as foot-and-mouth disease and avian influenza. In liasion with partner institutes we are engaged in extensive research and training in public health and food safety. Find out about our current and past research, journal papers, theses and dissertation.
