Research Investments in Global Health (ResIn) is an analysis of investments in infectious disease research.

wordcloud diseasesOur work so far has concentrated on collating information on funded studies from all the major public and philanthropic funders of UK biomedical research and analysing these awards to UK institutions for infectious disease research over the time period of 1997 to 2010. We have published the study findings in numerous peer-reviewed publications. Presentations and downloads of the data can be filtered and customised through the online open-access database. We are currently updating the analysis to include funding information up to 2013, and have also commenced similar analyses in cancer care research. Publications in both these areas will be written in late 2014 and early 2015. Further, we are also collecting information on funding awarded to US institutions for infectious disease, plus preliminary work on research funding for healthcare-associated funding and antimicrobial resistance.
