This site will host analyses of investments in infectious disease research, and is a collaboration between colleagues at University College London, Imperial College London and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
Our work so far has concentrated on analysing the United Kingdom public and philanthropic investments in infectious disease research over a time period of 1997 to 2010. Our first paper has been published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases, and a follow-up paper on antimicrobial resistance was published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy in Sept 2013 (see publications link).
Any questions in the meantime, please contact corresponding author and project lead Michael Head at email@example.com.
And if you wish to join our mailing list (no more than one or two emails a month, promise!), then please email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'subscribe' in the subject line.
