Welcome to ResIn, Research Investments in Global Health

Differences in research funding for women scientists: a comparison analysis of UK investments in global infectious disease research 1997–2010 - paper published on December 10th 2013, in BMJ Open. See also associated media coverage in the Independent


This site hosts an analysis of investments in infectious disease research, and is a collaboration between colleagues at University College London, Harvard School of Public Health and King's College London.

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 was published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases, and several follow-up papers on specific topics within infection have followed (see publications link).

Any questions in the meantime, please contact corresponding author and project lead Michael Head at m.head@ucl.ac.uk.

And if you wish to join our mailing list (no more than one or two emails a month, promise!), then please email info@researchinvestments.org with 'subscribe' in the subject line.
