Centre for Animal Health Innovation


Centre for Animal Health Innovation (CAHI) brings together researchers focused on developing innovative solutions to health problems that are of significance to wildlife conservation and the sustainable production of domesticated animals.

Many of these diseases studied by CAHI researchers also cross over into the human health setting, requiring “One Health” solutions that will assist stakeholders such as state and local governments, companies, not-for-profit organisations (eg wildlife hospitals), veterinarians and medical practitioners in reducing the prevalence and impact of diseases on all affected hosts. CAHI research is cross-disciplinary and brings together expertise in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, immunology, epidemiology and ecology, covering a range of animal health research areas.

The iconic koala is a major focus of current research efforts by CAHI members and involves innovative research projects to study koala health and, specifically, to improve the diagnosis, management and control of infections by its two major pathogens, Chlamydia and the Koala Retrovirus.
