Project Description

The recent epidemics of Ebola in West Africa and the current COVID-19 pandemic highlight the need for a critical mass of well-trained scientists and health research professionals capable of studying and responding appropriately, and in timely manner, to emerging infectious diseases outbreaks. This training program offers high-level training in field and laboratory epidemiology, translational clinical research, public health emergency management and genomic characterization and surveillance of emerging infectious pathogens. This project is a south-south collaborative research training program between the University of Bamako (USTTB) and the University of Conakry in Guinea, supported by Johns Hopkins University and NIAID. It will contribute to a more coordinated cross-border approach of public health preparedness and response to emerging infectious diseases epidemics.
