LSHTM

Regarding Our Cooperation with London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Nagasaki University School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health and the most prestigious school in the field, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), have a continuing partnership in education and research with the aim of improving global health. Currently there are two professors from LSHTM specializing in clinical tropical medicine and nutrition epidemiology respectively who are based in Nagasaki. In addition, professors in the fields of epidemiology, statistics, tropical medicine, and public health from London will be invited yearly in the hopes of forming a hybrid unit between Nagasaki University and LSHTM in order to expand graduate education and research.

Epidemiology, Statistics, Nutrition

I graduated from University College London with a BSc. (Biochemistry, First Class Hons) in 1996, followed by a postgraduate teaching qualification (1997), a Masters in Public Health Nutrition at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine [LSHTM] (1998) and finally a PhD, also at LSHTM (2003). My PhD comprised a clinical trial of low-dose maternal vitamin A supplementation to determine effects on immunity to malaria in pregnancy in Ghana. In 2002 I became a staff member at LSHTM within the MRC International Nutrition Group and worked on malaria and anaemia in Gambian children. In 2007 I moved to be based in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, working mostly on sickle cell disease. In 2015 I was appointed as a Professor at the School of Tropical Medicine & Global Health, Nagasaki, where I am now based. I also hold a joint appointment at LSHTM.
