St George’s, University of London is the UK’s only independent medical and healthcare higher education institution. St George’s is a modern, innovative academic and research organisation built upon a rich history stretching back 250 years. St George’s research aims to investigate and develop new, pioneering methods and treatments to improve public health in the local, national and international arena and in some of the poorest regions in the world. The Centre for Infection and Immunity, part of the Division of Clinical Sciences integrates different disciplines within St George’s providing a diverse and rich source of expertise in Pathogen, Immunology, and Clinical translational research; with research aimed at improvements in the diagnosis, therapy, and prevention of major infectious disease challenges of UK and global importance – notably HIV, STIs and associated infections (Cryptococcus); malaria; tuberculosis (and other mycobacteria); and health-care associated infections (Staphylococcus, C. difficile). It contains one of the largest and most experienced groups of TB researchers in Europe. The critical mass and vitality of the centre is enhanced by on-site collaborative working with a) an increasing number of NHS-based affiliates and trainees in the Clinical Infection Unit, Paediatric Infectious Diseases, Microbiology, Chest, and Genitourinary Medicine, given an increasing emphasis on the opportunities for clinical research provided by our co-location with St Georges Hospital NHS Trust; and b) affiliated members of other research centres within St. George’s with overlapping interests.
