Professor Sir Brian Greenwood

Professor Greenwood is Manson Professor of Clinical Tropical Medicine at LSHTM. Over the last 50 years, he has reinvented field research in tropical medicine and influenced public health policies. His work, some of which was published in Transactions in the 1980s, demonstrated the effectiveness of insecticide-treated nets, now the cornerstone of malaria control throughout Africa.
