Welcome

Thank you for expressing an interest in the post of Chair of the Board of Trustees at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).

At LSTM we are proud to be a recognised centre of excellence in tropical medicine research and postgraduate teaching. We focus on providing high quality scientific evidence and translating our scientific discovery into policies and practices. Our multidisciplinary approach to global health research allows us to translate research innovation and scientific breakthroughs from laboratory research into effective interventions for those most in need, working in partnership with researchers and academic organisations in low- and-middle-income countries. Our research portfolio, staff numbers and estate continue to grow, whilst maintaining a debt free status.

We are at an exciting point in our history, with a clear intention to remain at the cutting edge of innovation in research and intervention by attracting the best researchers from around the world to address some of the biggest problems in global health today. Reputational excellence in our field has secured a research order book of £210 million and we are leading 10 international consortia and product development partnerships

As the oldest institution of its kind, LSTM has been at the forefront of training leaders in global health since 1898. Our success is driven by our open collaborative approach across 70 countries with the focus on improving the lives of those most in need.  In 2017 LSTM was granted degree awarding powers, enabling us to continue to expand the educational provision of the school. We are proud to be host to over 600 students from 68 countries. LSTM provides unrivalled, relevant, learning opportunities to students within the UK and across the world; offering students the opportunity to excel in their careers in public health, medicine and academia and to set them on their paths to be global health leaders.

We are now seeking a new Chair of the Board of Trustees. This role is critical in helping us to achieve  our strategic aims and objectives and to grow our income and activity whilst ensuring the highest levels of  governance throughout the organisation. The Chair also has an important ambassadorial role.
