In 2011 the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) network was created. The main idea of this network is to bring together staff, students and alumni from the School who are currently working or are interested in working in Latin American and Caribbean countries. By doing so we hope that the LAC network will strengthen current research and training activities in the region.
Our main activities thus far have been: to create a database with projects that are (or were) being conducted by the School in the region, and to organize seminars that include both School faculty and visitors in which we shared ideas, experiences, research, and funding opportunities.
If you are interested in these areas, we would like to invite you to be part of the network – together we can strengthen the link between the the School and Latin America and the Caribbean! If you have information that you want to share with the network or have any suggestions please send us an email to: LACnetwork@lshtm.ac.uk
