Project Description

To maximize programmatic impact for training the next generation of Kenyan leaders, a world-class team of multidisciplinary investigators from Kenya and Ghana who were former trainees in the program, along with long-standing partners at the University of New Mexico and Los Alamos National Laboratory were assembled. This program aims to present advanced training in state-of-the art methodologies under the rubric of thematic target areas (Host-Pathogen Dynamics, Therapeutic Discovery, and Disease Modeling), strategically selected for maximizing long-term capacity building to combat high-burden infectious diseases in Kenya.
