University of Surrey

The University of Surrey is a public research university in Guildford, Surrey, England. The university received its royal charter in 1966. Its roots however, go back to Battersea Polytechnic Institute, founded in 1891 to provide higher education in London, including its poorer inhabitants. The university's research output and global partnerships have led to it being regarded as one of the UK's leading research universities.

The University of Surrey is engaged in a range of NTD related research, including surveillance, mathematical modelling and infectious disease epidemiology. At present, researchers from the university are working on food-borne trematodiases, leishmaniasis, rabies, schistosomiasis, and soil-transmitted helminths.
