Centre for Chronic Conditions

We are a group of multidisciplinary researchers seeking to improve understanding of and responses to chronic conditions in low, middle and high-income country settings through research, policy and public engagement and teaching.

Centre for Global Chronic Conditions

We seek to improve understanding of and responses to chronic conditions in low, middle and high-income country settings through research, policy and public engagement and teaching.

The Centre fosters collaboration and communication between researchers across a range of settings and disciplines. We have skills in epidemiology, economics, social and political sciences; and with a strong focus on health systems.

We address chronic non communicable diseases (NCDs), and also their interaction with other chronic conditions – in particular mental health, and chronic communicable diseases such as TB and HIV/AIDS.

CureME: Leading research into ME/CFS

The UK ME/CFS Biobank (UKMEB) is the first ME/CFS-specific biobank in Europe, and one of the first in the world. The UKMEB is run by the CureME research team at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and serves as the focal point for several major studies into ME/CFS, conducted by a committed research team with expertise in clinical epidemiology and laboratory science. It is overseen by a Steering Committee that includes patient representatives.
