LSTM was founded in November 1898 by Sir Alfred Lewis Jones, a influential shipping magnate, when Liverpool was a prominent port city with extensive trade with overseas regions such as West and Southern Africa. The number of patients in the region admitted to hospital with ‘tropical’ diseases soared. Sir Alfred Jones set up a School of Tropical Medicine to investigate these outbreaks. Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), founded in 1898, was the first institution in the world dedicated to research and teaching in the field of tropical medicine.
Whilst Liverpool is no longer the major trading port it was in Victorian times the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is still world leader in its field.
As a registered charity, LSTM works across the world, often in very difficult circumstances, to fulfil its mission of reducing the burden of sickness and mortality in disease endemic countries.
