Our Research

The MRC Unit The Gambia is building upon its international reputation for ground-breaking research into some of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the tropics.

Capitalising on the strengths that have led to some of the most outstanding successes in tropical medicine, The Unit’s vision is to: Leading health research in West Africa to save lives and improve health across the world.

Ties with collaborative centres within The Gambia and in the West African sub-region are strengthening the realisation of this vision.
