Earlier: LSHTM Greenwood Africa Award

Applications are currently ongoing for the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) Greenwood Africa Award for African Scientists. Interested students can see the details and apply if eligible.

The Greenwood Africa Award is being inaugurated to mark Professor Greenwood’s 80th birthday in 2018. Through his simple but high-quality methods for clinical studies and field trials of drugs and vaccines Prof Greenwood re-orientated field research in tropical medicine. His work has led the way in seeking holistic solutions based on cutting-edge science as well as a genuine understanding of the complex eco-system and real-life challenges unique to Africa. He demonstrated the effectiveness of insecticide-treated nets, now the cornerstone of malaria control throughout Africa, the importance of pneumonia as a cause of death and severe illness in African children and the potential to prevent this condition through vaccination against Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) and Streptococcus pneumoniae. He has also conducted  research on many aspects of meningitis in the African ‘meningitis belt’,  including its prevention through vaccination.

The Greenwood Africa Award recognises the research achievements and future potential of a mid-career African scientist in contributing to the control of infectious disease in sub-Saharan Africa. It is awarded to an individual who shows exceptional promise as an African research leader.
