Our teaching courses on sexually transmitted infections and HIV are taken by a wide range of doctors, other healthcare workers, laboratory scientists and public health practitioners. We foster an active research environment targeting a number of important areas, including sexually transmitted infectious diseases, immunological responses to STIs, anogenital cancers, novel diagnostic technologies and health service delivery issues.
