Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the health and reduce the human disease burden in the developing world by finding practical solutions to major tropical medical problems. Our research focus is Asia, as many infectious disease threats originate in this area, but many of the principles are globally applicable. We have shown that major improvements in medicine can derive from a well integrated, broad based, multidisciplinary, multinational, clinical and laboratory research network. We aim to inform health policy, change practice, and reduce the mortality from diseases in the tropics.
