The Research Institute for Tropical Medicine Logo is the primary symbol of the Institute. The logo symbolizes the Institute’s identity as a lead center for excellence in research and in providing quality health care services.

The main elements of the logo are the microscope and the test tube. These represent the institute’s expertise in the fields of infectious disease research and surveillance, diagnosis, clinical care, and biological production. The placing of these two main elements in an oval represents the unification of the different fields of expertise into one Institution – the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine.
