A Global Network for
Neglected Tropical Diseases

Chagas disease | Leishmaniasis

Welcome to the NTD Network website!

***ANNOUNCEMENT: Our programme is currently disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, some of our researchers around the world are redeployed in efforts to combat the virus: BLOG UPDATE TO FOLLOW SOON ***

We are “A Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases” (known as the NTD Network).
We comprise an international consortium of academic researchers from South America, Asia and the UK, seeking new therapeutic solutions to leishmaniasis and Chagas disease, and funded by UKRI’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
In this, the initial phase of our project (2018-2021) we are:
1.  Delivering a multidisciplinary, collaborative research initiative to identify new in-parasite drug targets for leishmaniasis and Chagas disease
2.  Training Ph.D. students and early career researchers around the world with the vital and specialised skills needed for this work
3.  Building capacity worldwide through knowledge transfer across the Network and assisting with enhancing research infrastructure at our partner institutions in developing countries
