This lecture series provides a unique, up to date, and authoritative overview of Neglected Tropical Diseases in both the individual diseases and the cross cutting issues, such as Water and Sanitation and community roles, for the teaching and benefit of researchers, students, and staff in pharmaceutical companies, research institutions, and development organisations.

Silent Signal is a Wellcome-Trust-funded biomedical science communication project. As part of the project’s legacy, a bank of free resources is available for those working in STEM outreach and education.
All the activities are curriculum linked, free to download and available to everyone. The resources complement six digital films, covering a wide range of biomedical themes that are applicable to parasitology. In particular AfterGlow deals with Malaria and Battle of Blister deals with inflammation, while Immune Craft explores immune learning, function and memory. The activities include curiosity-driven tabletop exercises to introduce the topics and promote informal learning, and then a lead discussion to promote debate into the cultural, societal and ethical considerations of biomedical research.
All the project information can be found at silentsignal.org and the educational resources can be found here.
