Workpackage 8

Underpinning research: Novel approaches to (re-) emerging disease detection and outbreak response using the COMPARE analytical framework

WP leader: Ron Fouchier, EMC (2) r.fouchier@erasmusmc.nl
co-leader: Mark Woolhouse, UEDIN (11) mark.woolhouse@ed.ac.uk

Objectives:

1. To develop and pilot early detection and surveillance of enteric pathogens and genes through strategic sampling and metagenomic analysis.

2. To develop and pilot ”hot-spot” based syndromic surveillance in animals and humans.

3. To develop and pilot early detection of surveillance of emerging zoonoses from the wildlife reservoir through strategic sampling and metagenomic analysis.

4. To develop and pilot early detection of changes in pathogen traits enhancing the risk for outbreaks and pandemic.
