MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis
The MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis is an international resource and centre of excellence for research on the epidemiological analysis and modelling of infectious diseases. We undertake applied collaborative work with national and international agencies to support policy planning and response operations against infectious disease threats.
NIHR HPRU in Modelling Methodology
Protecting the public’s health from infectious diseases requires timely and reliable evidence with which to make decisions. The NIHR HPRU in Modelling Methodology focuses on the exploitation of new data streams enabled by technological and data revolutions, such as the digital capture and linkage of ever larger volumes of health and social data and the routine genetic sequencing of pathogens.

London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research
The London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR) is an innovative research collaboration, bringing together leading experts to tackle diseases which affect the lives of over 1.7 billion of the poorest people across the globe. The LCNTDR undertakes cutting-edge research to build the evidence base around the design, implementation and evaluation of neglected tropical disease control and elimination programmes.
Partnership for Child Development
The Partnership for Child Development (PCD) is an organisation committed to improving the education, health and nutrition of school-age children in low and middle income countries. Working with governments, communities and agencies, through the provision of technical assistance, as well as strengthening the evidence base, PCD helps to deliver effective and sustainable demand driven SHN programmes which benefit millions of children around the world.
Patient Experience Research Centre
The Patient Experience Research Centre (PERC) is a multidisciplinary group of clinicians, public health specialists and social scientists combining strengths in quantitative and qualitative research methods. We aim to promote active communication between patients, researchers and clinical staff to address real problems, and through this improve the quality of healthcare and the impact of translational research.
