A number of the Group’s members at our Annual Retreat in September 2015.
THE MRC TROPICAL EPIDEMIOLOGY GROUP
The MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG; Head Dr Helen Weiss), is based within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. The Group was established in 1972 and now comprises 34 statisticians and epidemiologists with a research portfolio of over 30 grants. We conduct studies on the epidemiology and control of major public health problems of developing countries, with a major focus on HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical disease, and a special emphasis on intervention studies. The Group’s research is largely based in Africa and Asia.
