During the global COVID-19 pandemic, the re-use of dispersed data from multiple countries has been a critical tool for generating evidence and guiding policy. IDDO has played a key role as an international, interoperable data platform, working collaboratively across the scientific community and enabling researchers to provide rapid insight into disease pathogenesis and treatment.
IDDO works with the global, scientific community to accelerate existing knowledge through responsible data use, enabling the health, research and humanitarian communities to maximise resources, prioritise research and improve treatment outcomes.
IDDO brings together a broad range of expertise from across the infectious diseases research community with experience of other emerging infections such as Ebola Virus Disease. Below are the team members working on COVID-19 based at IDDO.
