Fitout of levels 2 & 3 of the existing TTR Building (previously completed by Kane), which includes teaching spaces, offices and a QC2/PC2 laboratory on level 3 and the upgrade and installation of new building services.

The Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (GCEID) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary research partnership between Deakin University, Barwon Health and CSIRO's Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) based on a "One Health" approach to understanding and mitigating the risks posed by emerging infectious diseases.

The $9 million GCEID is a world class research hub designed to tackle the increasing health and economic threat of diseases such as SARS, Hendra virus and bird flu.

The GCIED will benefit not only the local Geelong community in the form of jobs, but at a broader national and international level protecting the community and the economy.

It is Australia's first "One Health" facility protecting population health, food safety and food security.
