International Severe Acute Respiratory and emerging Infection Consortium (ISARIC)


ISARIC is a global consortium of research networks that aims to foster global collaborative patientoriented research between and during epidemics of severe acute respiratory infections and other rapidly emerging public health threats. The ambition of ISARIC is to generate new knowledge, maximise the availability of clinical information, and thereby save lives.

ISARIC gathers over 70 networks and individuals involved in research on epidemic-prone infectious diseases in more than 110 countries across resource settings. A multidisciplinary consortium, ISARIC gathers clinicians, clinical researchers, microbiologists, virologists, public health professionals, clinical trials experts, statisticians, and ethicists within its membership. The ISARIC Coordinating Centre is hosted by the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health and supports ISARIC members to prepare for and respond to epidemics.
