CALL FOR APPLICATIONS PRISM Training and Career Development Program

07 August 2012
The Infectious Disease Research Collaboration (IDRC) is pleased to announce that funding for research projects and support of skills training and career development is available from the US National Institutes of Health through a grant to IDRC for the Program for Resistance, Immunology, Surveillance and Modeling of Malaria in Uganda (PRISM)

PRISM Project

The overall purpose of the PRISM project is to conduct comprehensive surveillance of malaria in selected sentinel sites around Uganda to improve our understanding of the disease and measure the impact of population-level control interventions. The program links together research projects focusing on surveillance, immunology, and parasite and insecticide resistance, and is designed to address the complexity of interactions between the mosquito vector, malaria parasite, and human host, and combine standard malaria surveillance techniques and metrics with cutting-edge methods designed to improve surveillance.
