Centre for Tropical Medicine: treatment, research and education


Through its tropical units in developing countries, supported by the University’s own laboratories in Oxford, the Centre for Tropical Medicine has made an outstanding and internationally recognised contribution to advances in medical knowledge and to the prevention and treatment of tropical diseases. It has played an important role in revitalising training in tropical medicine and in raising awareness of this medical field both nationally and internationally; and many of the important and practical results of its research have been implemented by the World Health Organization and other bodies.
