A Global Network for
Neglected Tropical Diseases

Chagas disease | Leishmaniasis

Welcome to the NTD Network website!

We are the NTD Network: A global team in equal partnership.

Our international consortium of academic researchers from South America, Asia and the UK, are seeking new therapeutic solutions to Chagas disease and the different clincial forms of leishmaniasis, two Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).
This initial phase of our project (2018-2022) is funded by UKRI’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) via the Medical Research Council (MRC).
Our programme is focussed on:
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
