01

WE AIM TO ATTRACT AND TRAIN YOUNG COMPETITIVE SCIENTISTS FROM CAMEROON AND AFRICA

By competitive recruitment of young scientists at Ph.D. and Master levels and by the establishment of a mentorship program to help young scientists to develop their potential. This includes coaching in manuscript writing and career development ideas
02

COVER THE T1-T4 TRANSNATIONAL CONTINUUM IN OUR RESEARCH PORTFOLIO

We are working to broaden the scope of research activities at CRID including Basic research (T1), Development (T2), Implementation (T3) and Monitoring and surveillance plus policy (T4). We aim to recruit staff to match the expertise needed to cover the continuum and engage with other partners to develop the expertise from T1-T4
03

DEVELOP AN INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH IN TACKLING MAJOR INFECTIOUS DISEASES

We encourage scientists to use an interdisciplinary approach in their research. We also aim to broaden the scope of expertise at the CRID or establish collaboration with scientists with expertise not only in disciplines such as Social Sciences, Anthropology, Health Economic, Statistics but also in Bioinformatics.

ABOUT OUR RESEARCH

The overall goal of work in our laboratory is to understand the biology, genetics and genomics of mosquito vector diseases such as Malaria, arboviral related diseases, Lymphatic filariasis, and investigating  mechanisms involved in insecticide resistance in Anopheles and Aedes vectors.

OUR STRATEGIC GOALS

Establishment of a suitable research environment to facilitate high quality research on infectious diseases in Cameroon;

Contribute to capacity building by training the next generations of scientists from Cameroon and Africa;
Perform local technical assistance activities to support monitoring and surveillance activities of various control programs at local and international levels;
To promote cooperation with National and International research institutions, universities and Non-Governmental Organizations working in the field of infectious diseases;
facilitate the design and implementation of control activities against infectious diseases using multi-disciplinary approaches and integrating partners from different sectors including academic, governmental and private sectors;
