MRC LID is a partnership between St George’s, University of London and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

MRC LID brings together two outstanding specialist schools to provide integrated skills training to develop a cohort of biomedical and public health scientists with world-class expertise in areas of strategic importance to the UK and global medical research.

MRC LID is overseen by the board of management which comprises academics from both institutions.

All research training projects funded through this programme will address one or more of the MRC’s skill priorities and lie within one of three research themes.

MRC’s programme is designed to meet their skill priorities by providing training in quantitative skills, interdisciplinary skills and whole organism physiology whilst also delivering world-class research of immediate relevance to MRC’s “Research Changes Lives” strategic plan.

2019-20 projects are listed here under the three MRC LID Themes. Potential MRC LID iCASE studentships have also been listed in a separate table:

  • Evaluating Complex Interventions
  • Global Infectious Disease
  • Quantitative Skills for Large Data Sets
  • Potential MRC LID iCASE studentships

They actively encourage project proposals that cross these inter-related themes. For example, design and analysis of cluster randomised vaccine trials; complex interventions for controlling AMR; ‘omics and bioinformatics approaches to vaccine and drug design; developing inter-disciplinary methodologies for causal inference in, and economic evaluation of, natural experiments.

They also require all students, whatever their discipline, to enhance their quantitative skills and to embrace multidisciplinary working.
