Wellcome Trust Liverpool/Glasgow Global Health Centre
The Wellcome Trust Centre for Molecular Parasitology has joined the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Global Health Research based in Malawi. The aim of this enterprise is to support young, talented scientists in the field of global health and to harness the strong institutional commitments to global health in Liverpool; Glasgow and our low and middle income partners in Malawi, Ecuador and India. The Centre is directed by Professor Steven Gordon formerly of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
The Centre builds on the Wellcome Trust’s experience of supporting researchers in tackling research questions of public health importance in environments where disease burdens are highest. This will be combined with world leading expertise from Glasgow, including the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology.
The joint Centre for Global Health Research aims to promote excellent science, build capacity and drive strategic research collaboration in global health by supporting researchers from the UK and low and middle income countries to become independent researchers and future leaders in global health. The Centre will support their academic careers by providing them with ongoing mentorship, high quality research opportunities and access to cutting edge laboratory science. Collaboration with our international partners, across a wide spectrum of global health disciplines will allow research to be conducted in settings with the greatest disease burden.
Heading up the Glasgow end of the Global Health Centre will be Prof Andy Waters, Director of the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology who will be assisted by Dr Annette MacLeod a Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow and Prof Paul Garside, Professor of Immunology.
