It was while working at a hospital in Mae Sot on the Thailand-Myanmar border in 2006 when Elizabeth Ashley knew malaria research was her vocation. She also felt she had found a place in the world to call home. She had fallen for the people as well as a profession. Over 13 years later, Elizabeth Ashley became the Director of the Lao-Oxford-Mahosot Hospital-Wellcome Trust Research Unit (LOMWRU) in Vientiane, Laos, specialising in infectious diseases, medical microbiology, and virology. LOMWRU conducts diverse research into specialities such as epidemiology, diagnostics, and forensics, while also being known for health advocacy.
