The Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health is a world leading Centre within the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Oxford, comprised of research groups who are permanently based in Africa and Asia as well as across two sites in Oxford. Our research ranges from clinical studies to behavioural sciences, with capacity building integral to all of our activities.
Our research is conducted at three Wellcome Programmes in Kenya, Thailand and Viet Nam as well as a growing NDM Centre for Global Health Research in Oxford. The Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health also brings together a number of sister groups in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Nepal, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, as well as multiple collaborators around the world.
Tackling infectious diseases, which kill many millions of people every year, is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. We are researching solutions to the increasingly urgent problems these diseases cause.
