A Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases 

We comprise an international consortium of academic researchers from South America, Asia and the UK, seeking new therapeutic solutions to leishmaniasis and Chagas disease, and funded by UKRI’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).  We are:

1.  Delivering a multidisciplinary, collaborative research initiative to identify new in-parasite drug targets for leishmaniasis and Chagas disease

2.  Training Ph.D. students and early career researchers around the world with the vital and specialised skills needed for this work

3.  Building capacity worldwide through knowledge transfer across the Network and assisting with enhancing research infrastructure at our partner institutions in developing countries

Funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GRCF)
