Our mission is to deliver science for worldwide health, an endeavour to which you can contribute as well.
You need to make an appointment at our clinic to receive medical advice, but there are a few other ways you can get in touch.
Make an appointment
Consultations are by appointment only. Book your appointment well in advance, as waiting times can be long in spring and summer.
A collaboration between IPH Bengaluru and ITM
On 20-23 March 2023, Liselotte Hardy and Barbara Barbé (ITM’s coordinating and principal investigator of the SIMBLE project) visited the “Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Yalgado Ouédraogo" (CHU-YO) in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Our publication on the development and installation of SIMBLE microbiology culture media production facility was featured in The Lancet Microbe.
The Institute recently carried out a restoration project to return the valuable paintings of Belgian artist Allard l'Olivier to their original state. The project was made possible by funding from the King Baudouin Foundation's Léon Courtin-Marcelle Bouché Fund.
