At the International Institute of Infection and Immunity we recognize the importance of focussing of emerging and re emerging infectious diseases such as SARS and Avian Influenza. We have therefore set our sites on performing basic research on viruses and how these viruses affect humans.
Our goal is to understand how viruses such as SARS, Avian Influenza and Dengue spread and cause human disease. Based on the scientific information gained from these studies we are designing novel therapeutics and vaccines to combat the spread of viral disease and alleviate symptoms and suffering in humans infected with these viruses.

"To be able to contribute to society and to help those in need to build a better life, that is the ultimate meaning in life. I would gladly consider this to be my life's work."
After a childhood of hardship and strife, forced to quit school at the age of 15 to provide for his family, Mr. Li Ka-shing persevered. Throughout his struggles, Mr. Li realized how vital quality education and healthcare are to the success of a family and society as a whole. Thereby, the twin pillars of education and health care have long been the foundation of Mr. Li’s charitable work.
