Home Research Platforms


Our laboratories, field sites and clinical facilities enable us to carry out the full spectrum of biomedical, clinical and public health research.


Our well-equipped and up-to-date laboratory facilities enable us to carry out a wide range of microbiological, molecular genetic and other studies.

Field sites

We run a range of field sites, including the developing world’s longest running demographic surveillance site at Matlab, a rural area south of Dhaka. These urban and rural field sites support an extensive programme of surveillance and population-based and health systems research.


We provide clinical services at a range of clinical facilities, including Dhaka Hospital and Matlab Hospital. This clinical infrastructure provides a platform for a large programme of clinical research, particularly in infectious disease.
