Course Description

The Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases encompasses laboratory-based research as well as research on the clinical and epidemiological aspects of infectious and tropical diseases. The range of disciplines represented is very broad and interdisciplinary research is a feature of much of the activity. The spectrum of diseases studied is wide, including major groups with a focus on malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, eye disease, vaccine evaluation, and vector biology and control. The Faculty is organised into four research departments comprising: Clinical Research; Disease Control; Immunology and Infection; and Pathogen Molecular Biology. The Faculty has strong overseas links which provide a basis for field studies and international collaborations in developed and developing countries for DrPH and PhD students interested in global health. The Faculty provides a stimulating environment for research and postgraduate teaching at the doctoral level. Funding opportunities for research degrees training include Medical Research Council Studentships, studentships held jointly with other colleges of the Bloomsbury Colleges, and funded Graduate Teaching Assistantships available for designated areas of research. In the last few years substantial investment has provided newly refurbished and modern facilities for laboratory-based research.
