Welcome to the Vale Lab

We are a research group within the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Edinburgh, focusing on the ecology and evolution of infectious disease.

We have questions:

Why do individuals differ in how sick they get? Why do they differ in how sick they make others? Can we identify early-warning signals for critical transitions between health and disease, or between life and death? How will pathogens spread & evolve in response to host heterogeneity?

 

Our work has received generous support from:
