Global Health Research

Introduction

An increasing number of University of Cambridge researchers are working on global human health research. Projects range from lab research into pathogens or public health modelling through to interventional trials involving human participants.

Any projects involving human participants, their tissue, or their data require specific approvals before they can start. Please read the 'Sponsorship, Ethics and Insurance' page to find out more.
