The UK Centre for Research in Clinical Tropical Medicine
The UK Centre for Research in Clinical Tropical Medicine at Oxford provides support to Wellcome Trust Fellows working overseas and to the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes in Kenya, Thailand and Viet Nam.
Support for overseas researchers includes the organisation of UK-based scientific meetings, export of laboratory consumables and equipment, links to academics based in Oxford and to the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, and library services.
We provide bursaries for PhD students based at the overseas programmes and support clinical training in tropical medicine in the UK and overseas. Medical elective students from the UK can spend time at Tropical Medicine's overseas programmes and we support medical students from developing countries completing a medical elective in Oxford.
