October 7, 2005

'At a time when the attention of the world is focused on Africa and, more generally, on global health and development, we at the Medical Research Council are pleased to be able to work with The Times Higher on Frontiers.

This special supplement showcases the exciting and important work of the MRC's early-career researchers in the area of global infections and highlights the work of some of our most talented young scientists. We hope their stories will inspire others considering a career in this vital area of scientific research.'
