Study at LSTM

Study

When you join LSTM, you will be joining a family that meet in the most unlikely and remote places around the world.

Our staff & alumni have been part of the Ebola Response in West Africa; they were treating patients in Haiti after the earthquake; they were on some of the first flights to Thailand after the Tsunami; they have built roads where there were none; they have negotiated to secure aid whilst civil war and unrest were rife; they have brought hope to refugee camps; and closer to home they have advised the UK government on our response to Tropical & Infectious Diseases.

From medics and nurses to water & sanitation technical experts, from managing a TB programme in Sudan to creating new vaccines, from measuring parasites in lakes to finding new molecules; LSTM staff and alumni are making a difference in the world.
