Who we are

IDDO brings together a broad range of expertise from across the infectious diseases research community. 

 

Our core team comprises a Secretariat, scientists, statisticians, communications, informatics, data management and administration teams. The core team is based in the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health at the University of Oxford. 

The IDDO Secretariat takes primary responsibility for administering the IDDO platform and promoting the interests of data contributors, patients and the research community. The Secretariat supports the administration of the governance bodies and liaises with data contributors to build the impact of the platform.

IDDO is connected to the broader research community through a network of data contributors and research partners with expertise and interest in specific infectious diseases and research themes. Each disease area or research theme is supported by experts in specific diseases who provide advice and guidance on scientific priorities.

The Wellcome Trust provides the Secretariat for the Ebola Clinical Trial Data Access Committee. The Wellcome Trust has been responsible for the recruitment of the committee members, who are drawn from the affected countries.
