Students at MORU
Based in Bangkok, The Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) is a research collaboration established in 1979 between our host, Mahidol University, University of Oxford and the Wellcome Trust. We seek to seek to address health problems afflicting urban and rural populations across the tropics.
A key focus of MORU is building scientific research capacity in Thailand and SE and South Asia. One way we do this is by hosting students in a world-class research environment.
MORU currently hosts DPhil PhD and MSc students from Mahidol's Faculty of Tropical Medicine, the Nuffield Dept of Medicine at Oxford and the UK's Open University. We welcome inquiries and applications from students around the world.
We offer students opportunities in multi-disciplinary research areas such as malaria, microbiology, pharmacology, mathematical & economic modelling, epidemiology, bioethics and community engagement.
In this video, you'll hear from some of our current students about why living and studying in SE Asia and at MORU is such a great experience.
