Neglected Tropical Diseases

LSTM is working to identify critical bottlenecks in the field of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) through its research and implementation activities, whilst evaluating alternative strategies to overcome the existing barriers and to improve strategies for their control and elimination.

In response, LSTM focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to NTDs, building on the particular strengths of its academic departments. This draws together a broad range of existing NTD expertise and creates new areas for collaborative programmes across LSTM.
