Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine

The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is an international postgraduate centre of excellence devoted to research, education and training, and consultancy. The School was founded in 1898, becoming the world’s first institution devoted primarily to tropical health. It has extensive links with UN organisations, health ministries, universities, non-governmental organisations and research institutions worldwide, and is involved in numerous programmes to control diseases of poverty and to develop more effective systems for health care.

The School prides itself on its links with developing countries and is committed to increasing such partnerships. 

Research on malaria is a key component of the School’s activities and covers a broad spectrum - from laboratory-based science, through clinical trials to health technology assessment.
