Establish Collaborations in Rwanda and Kenya on Translational Studies of Malaria

Project Objectives

This project has two collaborative research aims:

1) Build upon an existing collaboration with Wendy O'Meara of DGHI at her field site in Eldoret, Kenya to study the molecular pathogenesis of falciparum malaria and its interaction with other communicable and non-communicable diseases; and

2) Establish a new research collaboration with Stephen Rulisa of Centre Hospitalier et Universitaire de Kigali, Rwanda (CHUK) focused on pregnancy-associated malaria and its impact on birth outcomes and neonatal health.
