‘Public health microbiology’ is ‘a crosscutting area that spans the fields of human, animal, food, water and environmental microbiology, with a focus on human health and disease. It requires laboratory scientists with the ability to work effectively across disciplines, particularly epidemiology and clinical medicine’. 

Public health microbiology aims to interpret diagnostics at the population level, rather than at the level of the individual patient.
