Liverpool is a major center of tropical medicine. According to the website:
the school was founded in 1898, becoming the World's first institution devoted primarily to tropical health. It has extensive links with UN organizations, health ministries, universities, non-governmental organizations and research institutions worldwide and is involved in numerous programmes to control diseases of poverty and to develop more effective systems for health care. The School prides itself on its links with developing countries and is committed to increasing such partnerships.
Sounds right up my alley. Back in medical school, believe it or not, I was one of the most gifted students at looking for ova & parasites in stool samples under the microscope! Ro can vouch.
