Thanks Sari. Here is amended version, with a few other alterations as suggested by people.
Please share it with others at LSHTM if appropriate - I only copied it to you and Paul.

This is very interesting - I have one comment - perhaps you could put more on the
success of the scientific collaboration between Tyndall and LSHTM - e.g.several inputs
to CCASHH . - and make clear that the joint programme is not going well because the
funders do not support interdiscplinary research - to avoid any misinterpretation.
I think two proposals are going into the MRC on jan 30th -
1) Armstrong et al. Statistical methods for estimating the effect of weather on health
from time series data.
2) Wilkinson et al. DECISION-ANALYSIS FRAMEWORK FOR ADAPTING TO FUTURE BURDENS OF
THERMAL EXTREMES IN LOW- & MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES.

Please read the attached 2-pager.
This was prepared in response to a question from DEFRA about climate change
and health research and Tyndall Centre.
I hope I have mentioned the main items, but please correct me/inform me of
any oversights. What I haven't included is a section on up-coming
proposals arising out of the MRC-NERC Co-op. Perhaps I could add a section
about this if I get the raw material.
