Doris Duke Translational Malaria Research Training Program
A new malaria research training program has been created at the University of Maryland for MD/MPH and MD/PhD students in Global Health and related fields including but not limited Molecular Epidemiology and Microbiology and Immunology. The first group of Doris Duke Fellows was recruited and selected in early 2007. Fellows will spend at least 10 weeks of the summer after their first year of medical school doing combined laboratory and field research rotations in the Malaria Section of the Center for Vaccine Development (CVD).
This research training will focus on genetic diversity and efficacy of malaria drugs and vaccines, and will combine molecular epidemiology, clinical research and molecular evolution.
Students will spend 4-6 weeks in the CVD Malaria Section in Baltimore being trained in molecular epidemiology, bioinformatics and/or epidemiological data analysis before undertaking 4-6 weeks of clinical research training at either the Bandiagara Malaria Project in Mali or the Blantyre Malaria Project in Malawi.
Students may then opt to concentrate on clinical translational malaria research for their MPH or PhD research projects.
