Role of Brighton & Sussex Medical School

Brighton & Sussex Medical School acts as an international ‘hub’ for podoconiosis research, ensuring that –

  • studies are not duplicated but build on each other
  • investigators in podoconiosis-endemic countries can build collaborations with investigators in Europe and the United States
  • funding opportunities in high-income countries can be utilised by investigators in endemic countries
  • investigators are kept informed of research developments across disciplines (for example those in genetics about progress in mineralogy).
