Explore past scientists from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and discover how their legacy has impacted on today's  scientists who continue to address some of the major health challenges of our time.

Immerse yourself in the Tropical Medicine Time Machine and be transported across the annals of LSTM’s past, present, and future. You'll learn about its vital work in the areas of disease vectors, travel health, public health and microbiology. 

From discoveries of the 1900s, during the First World War, we dive into the work of Alwen Evans as she begins her landmark study of flies and mosquitos and their role in spreading malaria, becoming LSTM’s first female lecturer in Entomology. In this exhibition you will see exquisitely detailed drawings of mosquitos and a special ‘version’ of Alwen who will tell you all about her travels and discoveries as well as some of the history of the LSTM.  

This work has been created by Sci-Art practitioners Tom Hyatt and Natasha Niethammer with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with LSTM Past, Present and Future, reflecting on the school’s history as part of its 125 year anniversary. LSTM would like to thank lottery players for their support in enabling this important project to go ahead.
