Experts in the field

At LSTM you’ll learn from leading experts – inspirational teachers with an in-depth knowledge of their specialities.

Many of our experts are international leaders and advisers, and all will ensure that the latest research is at the core of your learning experience. 

Our researchers work in six main areas...

  • Neglected tropical diseases
  • Resistance research and management
  • Lung health and tuberculosis
  • Malaria and other vector borne diseases
  • Applied health
  • Maternal, Newborn and Child Health 

LSTM is full of inspirational teachers. Many have spent time living in resource-poor settings and they are committed to improving the health of people living in poor countries. Most are active researchers so they have in-depth knowledge of their specialities, and many are international leaders and advisers.
