This project aims to train a new generation of researchers with a focus on implementation science and clinical trial capacity. Our emphasis will be to advance clinical and translational research focused on the delivery of quality health services for endemic viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) like Lassa fever, while simultaneously building indigenous capacity on how to conduct higher-level clinical trial research during an epidemic like Ebola.
