IMPALA works with MLW Lung Health Research Group led by Dr Jamie Rylance. The group supports IMPALA’s PhD and Post-Doc projects looking at clean air, lung health across the lifespan and acute respiratory illnesses.

MLW conduct internationally excellent science to benefit human health with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa. MLW is built around excellent laboratories, strategically located in the largest hospital in Malawi, closely linked with the community and an integral part of the medical school. These relationships provide a unique opportunity replicated in few centres in Africa to study major health issues spanning both community and hospital.
