About us

iee logoInfection Ecology and Epidemiology, IEE network is a collaboration for researchers with interest in zoonotic infections. IEE is an integration concept including several universities and governmental organizations that wish to contribute to a sustainable intellectual platform where veterinarians, physicians, molecular biologists, ecologists and environmental chemists with an interest in zoonotic infections can interact and create synergies.
The rationale is not to build up new laboratory facilities, but to use and collaborate within already established research structures.
The network was founded in 2010 by Björn Olsen, professor in infectious disease at Uppsala University and senior physician at Uppsala Academic Hospital. He is an ornithologist with an interest in the consequences of interactions between humans, domestic animals and wildlife.
