The University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Medicine’s Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health (CTMGH) is an umbrella network providing UK administrative support for and linking research centres based in Oxford (UK), Africa and Southeast Asia. Our aim is to provide world class research facilities, coupled with a strong ethos of capacity development.

CTMGH especially works to support three Wellcome Programmes headquartered in Kenya (KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP)), Viet Nam (Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU)) and Thailand (Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU)) with linked units in Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Uganda, Nepal and Indonesia. These units focus on national health priorities and operate in close alignment to in-country host institutions. These are among the largest-scale and most enduring research facilities supported by any UK university overseas. Besides conducting research into infectious diseases, from basic research and diagnostics development to drug discovery, clinical trials and implementation, we also run training programmes for research scientists.
