About Us
The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute works globally to improve health and well-being through excellence in research, education, and services. Founded in 1943, the work currently spans infectious and non-communicable diseases, environment, society and health. In 2022, the new headquarters, ‘Belo Horizonte’, including state-of-the-art laboratory and research facilities, was completed in Allschwil. Designed by Basel architects Renato Kunz and Philip Mösch, the building won a Basel cantonal architecture prize in 2023.

Lisa Crump (Cornell Class of 1982; veterinary epidemiologist at Swiss TPH) will give a presentation on Swiss TPH and the ‘One Health’ work of the Human and Animal Health unit, with time for Q & A, along with a tour of the building.
