Professor David Arnot’s research has been enriched by cross-border collaboration.
Professor Arnot, who conducts research into malaria, first met Danish colleagues in his field some thirty years ago, when working in Sudan.
The meeting was the beginning of a productive relationship. He was invited to work in Denmark and spent three years in Copenhagen - a key centre for malaria research - on a visiting scholarship, and has maintained links with the country ever since.
Now, in collaboration with Danish colleagues, he is working on a malaria vaccine, and says the developments in his work would not have been possible without developing research links abroad.
The network of researchers and research exchanges based around Copenhagen enriched my research. There is no doubt that the benefits of a longstanding exchange and collaboration like this are numerous, especially in my research work – but in teaching too.
