Programme Outline

This programme provides advanced contemporary training in parasitology and the study of disease vectors and the pathogens they transmit. The programme is broad in scope, ranging from the biology, immunology, and ecology and population biology of the organisms of importance to public health, to disease epidemiology and tropical health issues.

In addition to providing a solid foundation in pathogen, parasite and vector biology, the programme provides practical experience of essential techniques, as well as significant theoretical and practical knowledge in all important and topical areas of the field.

This course aims to:

  • Equip students with the knowledge and practical skills needed to develop a career in research, training or control of vector-borne diseases, pathogens, parasites, and organisms of importance to public health with particular emphasis on tropical and resource-poor regions of the world.
  • Provide practical experience of a range of specialised technical and analytical skills relevant to the study of disease vectors, pathogens, parasites, and organisms of importance to public health with particular emphasis on tropical and resource-poor regions of the world.
  • Enable students to conduct independent research in the laboratory and/or field.
  • Produce graduates who are experienced, committed, informed, proactive and effective professionals, capable of taking substantial and leading professional roles.
  • Facilitate high quality learning that is informed by critical analysis of current research.


Many alumni of LSTM hold prominent positions in health ministries, universities, hospitals, and international organisations throughout the world. Graduates are competitively placed to begin PhD programmes, seek employment within research programmes, work overseas in developing countries with a wide variety of employers including NGOs, military and public health-related employers, enter teacher training, or return to previous employers with enhanced knowledge and skills with which to advance their existing careers. Graduates of the MSc Tropical Disease Biology have undergone excellent general preparation for a career in laboratory and field research in biological sciences, and are particularly well placed for careers in research or training in areas related to organisms of importance to public health, pathogen, parasitic and vector-borne diseases globally, and particularly within tropical or resource-poor regions of the world.
