The LCNTDR was launched in 2013 with the aim of providing focused operational and research support for NTD control. The LCNTDR member institutions house over 150 leading NTD experts with a wide range of specialties, making the Centre a valuable resource for cross-sectoral research and collaboration.    

This creates within the LCNTDR an immense capacity for research in many forms: parasite genomics and identification, mathematical modeling to predict treatment and control outcomes, spatial mapping of disease priority areas, clinical and operational research, and much more.
