The Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology - Public Health (CIDM-PH) was formed in 2003 to coordinate public health research in CIDM at the Institute of Clinical Pathology and Medical Research (ICPMR), Westmead Hospital.

The CIDM-PH formation has been supported by a competitive NSW Health Prevention Research Support Program, which provide salaries or stipends for support staff, postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate students.

The CIDM-PH was founded by Professor Lyn Gilbert, an infectious diseases physician and clinical microbiologist and former Director of clinical microbiology at the Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (CIDM) at ICPMR. She was instrumental in establishing the national Public Health Laboratory Network (PHLN) of Australia, and served as its first chair from 1997-2001. A/Professor Vitali Sintchenko succeeded Lyn Gilbert as Director of CIDM-PH in July 2013. The CIDM-PH remains an active member of the PHLN.
