A number of students incorporate malaria-related research in their degrees at the School.

The Centre houses Research Degree students who are studying for their MPhils, PhDs or DrPHs and working on different aspects of malaria.

The Centre has two Student Representatives who represent the interests of Malaria Centre students as well as coordinate different activities. The current representatives are deborah [dot] diliberto [at] lshtm [dot] ac [dot] uk (Deborah DiLiberto) and Katherine [dot] Theiss-Nyland [at] lshtm [dot] ac [dot] uk (Katherine Theiss-Nyland.)
