St George’s, University of London (SGUL)
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)
have formed the London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC LID), which is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC).
MRC LID brings together two outstanding specialist schools to provide integrated skills training to develop a cohort of biomedical and public health scientists with world-class expertise in areas of strategic importance to UK and global medical research.
Our training programme is across three main themes in which we have been at the forefront of innovative research and methodological development:
- Global Infectious Disease,
- Quantitative Skills for Large Data Sets, and
- Evaluation of Complex Interventions.
MRC LID is overseen by the board of management which comprises academics from both institutions.
