Prof Rob Harrison on ‘LSTM’s research activity and impacts on tropical snakebite’

The former head of LSTM‘s Centre for Snakebite Research & Interventions (CSRI), Professor Rob Harrison, on behalf of Professors David Theakston, David Lalloo and Nick Casewell, has given a talk about LSTM’s research activity and impacts on tropical snakebite.

As part of LSTM’s REF2021 Research Impact Statement, and as a tribute to Professor David Theakston’s leadership, Rob described LSTM’s decades-long research on tropical snakebite victims, the activities they have undertaken to understand the scale of the problem, and therapeutic solutions and why these have been focused on sub-Saharan Africa.

Rob described the impact LSTM’s research and advocacy activity has had upon victims, international health policy and the tropical snakebite research domain.

A recording of the talk, which took place on 11 November 2020, is available on YouTube.
