Website for LSTM - the first centre of excellence in tropical medicine

When LSTM was founded in 1898, it was the first institution in the world dedicated to tropical medicine. They provide evidence to translate relevant science into policies and practices - a history and pedigree they're proud of.​

An early challenge was to present the overlaps between departments in a simple way. Encouraging discovery of these relationships through casual browsing is key to LSTM, it's a glimpse into the breadth of their research.​

A hefty scoping phase pinned down the site-wide relationships with LSTM's cross cutting themes. During this phase, we created our content model, the foundation for translating those relationships into a simple experience for site visitors and content editors.​

Along with the overhauled site structure, the relaunched site has impact stories and case studies to show how LSTM translate scientific breakthroughs into interventions for those most in need.

I can't recommend working with Manta Ray Media highly enough! The process around the development of LSTM's new website was smooth; professional; realistic; pragmatic and knowledgeable.

Manta Ray knows the academic & global health sector as no other, which is extremely useful as they are able to translate general ideas into specific products.
