Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseases (NITD)

Year Established: 2002

The Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseases (NITD), one of the institutes of the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR), is dedicated to finding new medicines to treat neglected, infectious diseases. As a small-molecule drug discovery research institute, it combines the drug-discovery expertise and cutting-edge technologies of Novartis to fight infectious tropical diseases, including Dengue fever, Human African Trypanomiasis and Malaria among others.

In developing countries where these diseases are endemic, Novartis will make treatments accessible to the communities that need them. NITD was set up as a public-private partnership between Novartis and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) in 2002. Since then, it has grown to more than 100 researchers and supporting staff. As a major center of excellence for drug discovery, NITD will offer exceptional teaching and training opportunities for post-doctoral fellows and graduate students.
