Liverpool Infection and Global Health Alumni Association
Liverpool has a leading international reputation and proud tradition of work in infection and global health that goes back more than 150 years. The city has produced many outstanding scientists and clinicians including Ronald Ross, who was the first Briton to be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for medicine for demonstrating that malaria parasites are transmitted by mosquitoes; Allan Downie, who was instrumental in the eradication of smallpox; and Tony Hart, who led microbiology in Liverpool for 25 years until his death in 2007. These successes are mirrored in veterinary infectious disease with Jack Thomlinson's early work on Escherichia coli typing to the current day expertise of Lord Sandy Trees on veterinary parasitology.
In 2010 The Institute of Infection and Global Health was established at the University of Liverpool to build on this fantastic legacy and in 2012 the Liverpool Infection and Global Health Alumni Association was launched with the aim of developing a thriving network of people connected with infection and global health in Liverpool, both past and present.
