メッセージ

The world is changing rapidly as we know it. Climate has been changing through the decades, and on top of that we are still living in a world highly dependent on fossil fuel. With this array of environmental challenges, health will be one of the few direct human dimensions whereby there is apparent and substantial negative impact. It is important that we understand the underlying mechanisms and the subsequent risks associated with the environmental exposures, and at the same time package such results/information towards policy-relevant inputs.

We welcome all the students and aspirants who wish to do their research in the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health.
