Centre for Medical Parasitology (CMP)
The Centre for Medical Parasitology (CMP) was founded in 1991, formalizing the close collaboration between research groups at the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Immunology (IMMI) and the Institute of Public Health, University of Copenhagen, and the Departments of Infectious Diseases (DID), and Clinical Microbiology (DCM) at Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet).
Research at CMP is centred on malaria. The majority of the work is grant-financed supported.
CMP is part of a well-established international scientific network, composed of scientist in Europe, Africa, America and Australia. More than 60 scientists and technicians are affiliated at CMP. A large proportion of these are engaged in graduate as well as postgraduate training.
In 2007, the CMP laboratories at the Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen and at the Department of Infectious Diseases, Rigshospitalet were relocated to newly renovated facilities at the former Kommunehospitalet, now University of Copenhagen City Campus or Center for Health and Society (CSS).
