The global Penta ID Network started in Europe and has been growing steadily in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Our members are healthcare professionals, researchers and scientists who cover a depth and breadth of expertise and specialties and share a common vision to improve research on paediatric infectious diseases.
We leverage this diversity to develop and deliver world class clinical research, education and training programmes and infrastructure development initiatives in the area of paediatric infectious disease, all with the aim of improving the lives of women and children through generation and application of scientific knowledge.
Within our network are eight working groups consisting of experts in basic science, bloodborne viruses, clinical pharmacology, early career researchers, fungal infections, infection in pregnancy and vertical transmission, severe bacterial infections and anti-microbial resistance, and training and education. Although each working group has its own objectives, the overarching goal amongst them is improving the health outcomes of children and pregnant women.
The Network also supports Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to build their research passion, capability and develop their careers. Within the Network, ECRs are considered the next generation of leading researchers in paediatric infectious diseases.
Are you interested in being part of the global, independent Penta ID Network?
As a member – working in maternal or paediatric infectious disease, a healthcare professional, researcher or scientist – you can contribute to achieving better outcomes for children through your combined experience, knowledge and influence.
Whether you are just starting out or are already working in maternal or paediatric infectious disease, we invite you to join our growing global Penta ID Network.
Our members interact by participating in online and face to face discussions and meetings, and we support them to disseminate their research and activities. Our members support us by facilitating access to clinical sites and cohorts and promoting Penta’s work externally. From support at different stages of your career to access to network and educational resources, we offer a range of benefits to our members:
