A new pilot call from Oxford this 2023 for "Diagnostics in Tropical and Infectious Diseases"


The FIRST joint-call of University of Oxford and tropical medicine diagnostic development centre (Tropmed_DC), 
Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University

    This is in collaboration with University of Oxford. This call aims to strengthen the long-term partnership between Oxford University and our host institute, the Faculty of Tropical Medicine (FTM), Mahidol University through the newly established Tropical medicine diagnostic development centre (Tropmed_DC).


      The call will look to establish partnerships and support collaborative projects around the priority areas of novel diagnostics tools targeting development of the tropical healthcare setting. Oxford employed PIs based in Oxford (UK) or MORU Tropical Health Network (Thailand) are encouraged to apply with at least one PI being based in Oxford, UK.

        If you are interested in the call but have yet to identify Oxford-employed PIs as part of your team, we are glad to support your team by identifying a potential match from the University of Oxford for you.


        Technologies supported can span from early stages of prototyping to requiring further validation towards implementation in the clinical setting and thus would benefit from on the ground testing in relevant patient populations and global health settings.

If you are interested in this call, please contact:
or visit our office at Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU),
Mathematical and Economic Modelling Department (MAEMOD),
11F Chamlong Harinasuta Building, 420/6 Rajvithi Rd, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
