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
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
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.
