The Research Investments in Global Health (ResIn) study is an analysis of global investments in health research, and is based at the University of Southampton.

wordcloud diseasesOur work so far has concentrated on describing the UK portfolio of infectious disease research over the time period of 1997 to 2013. See the publications page for our numerous published outputs, and also the ‘about us’ page for our activity when informing government, funding agencies, policymakers, research institutions and individual researchers.

In 2015, we have been awarded funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to greatly expand our work, to cover infectious disease analyses across the G20 countries, with a particular focus on the investment portfolios relate to pneumonia, neonatal infectious disease and maternal immunisation.
