Training, capacity building and long-term sustainability

Training and capacity building will be an integral part of the GHRG, to ensure long term sustainability. It will include MRes places for both UK and overseas students, who will join the cohort supported through UoL’s extensive global health training programmes. We will offer short course training, extending our annual Liverpool Neurological Infectious Diseases course, which has trained more than 500 doctors from the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, since 2007. We will also offer generic, and brain infections-specific online training through our partner, the Global Health Research Network. We will extend the reach of our GHRG, developing a web-based Brain Infection Network and Registry, to allow other institutions to join the community and begin capturing information about patients in their settings.
