Research

Research at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) emphasises interdisciplinary approaches and both national and international partnerships. In addition, we continue to combine field, laboratory and clinical activities to generate fruitful synergies in research, services and teaching.
Activities are associated with the research units listed below, and many of our projects involve the participation of other units in both research departments as well as our service centres. This approach to collaboration at the Swiss TPH ensures the best possible use of our experience and facilities for innovation, validation, and applications to improve the health of populations.
