We house the largest number of malaria researchers, staff and students in Europe. We are the authoritative academic voice on malaria research.
The ultimate aim of the Malaria Centre is to make a significant contribution to international efforts to reduce the burden of malaria by influencing global practice and policy with high quality, relevant research.
The objective of the Malaria Centre is to foster collaboration both within LSHTM and externally by building on the individual strengths of research groups and integrating research across various disciplines from basic science to applied research.
We do this by:
Encouraging the development of links between malaria researchers of different disciplines based at LSHTM,
Facilitating the development of links and collaboration between researchers in and external to the LSHTM particularly colleagues working in malaria endemic areas
Disseminating research findings and promoting malaria R&D globally,
Coordinating malaria teaching at LSHTM,
and contributing to global efforts to control malaria infection
The Centre brings together around 200 scientists, postgraduate students and support staff from all 3 faculties in LSHTM (the Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases; the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health; and the Faculty of Public Health and Policy). The centre has a major international profile with members working in around 25 countries at any one time.
|Founded||The Malaria Centre was established by Professor Sir Brian Greenwood in 1998 to facilitate interdisciplinary research at the School as well as support and promote links with research in malaria endemic countries.|
