We believe that research should not just be for the benefit of low resource countries but led by them.
These regions bear a disproportionately high burden of disease, but scientific priorities and funding have historically been driven by those far removed from the challenges they face.
It is time to shift this power.
Our new Global Fellowships programme will support the most exceptional and promising researchers who have the potential to become leaders in their field. They provide funding, mentoring and development to accelerate their careers and support cutting-edge scientific research, with genuine impact for their communities and regions.
HiVE is LSTM’s pioneering virtual incubator, which aims to identify and test new ideas for global health by bringing together virtual teams across borders, sectors, and disciplines.
We know from working in the field across the world that there is no shortage of talented and motivated individuals who are driven to make a difference in their communities, countries and beyond. There is, however, a shortage of opportunities for these individuals to reach their full potential; we believe the HIVE could be the key to unlocking it.
Why your support is so important?
Support from donors enables us to push the boundaries of traditional research and statutory funding. They allow the freedom to develop solutions which will catalyse new knowledge and research funding, ultimately decreasing reliance on aid.
Donations enable us to invest in new, untested, and perhaps unconventional ideas and the most promising students and scientists. These are the people who will lead the world in finding solutions to humanity biggest health challenges.
Donations allow the flexibility to work with new partners and support them in developing their own research infrastructure and competitiveness. This creates collaborations which are responsive to regional challenges, but which have the potential to benefit human health worldwide.
