Project Description

The overall objective of our training program is to provide research training for Zambian and Chinese biomedical researchers and health care providers at the University of Nebraska and its collaborating US institutions, the University of Miami and the University of Alabama, to increase their expertise and capability to perform high quality research on HIV and AIDS associated malignancies.

The program provides academic training leading to advanced degrees (MS, MPH or PhD); didactic classroom instruction; support to attend seminars and workshops; and subject participation in biomedical and behavioral studies that focus primarily on HIV and AIDS related malignancies diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

In addition, our program provides short-term research rotations in the US arranged with direct involvement in basic research training, clinical studies, and the learning of new scientific techniques including protocol development, project management, and data collection/analysis of projects directly relevant to the trainees' interests. Our focus also includes in-country training of local clinicians and public health professionals through workshops that enhance medical know-how and HIV-related prevention including studies on AIDS associated malignancies.
