Field research team (TANZANIA)

The Korogwe Field Station 

The work in Tanzania is done as part of the Joint Malaria Programme, which is an umbrella for research activities involving scientists from National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), Tanzania and Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College (KCMC), Tanzania, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, United Kingdom, and University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The field team is implementing CMP activities in collaboration with Tanzanian colleagues. Work is being done from Kilimanjaro to the Indian Ocean, but many of the activities are based in Korogwe Hospital, where a new research facility was opened in 2008. CMP is involved in vaccine testing, drug resistant monitoring, and work to characterize the interaction between the malaria parasite and the human host. The work in Tanzania is essential for CMP strategies as it links the laboratory-based activities in Copenhagen with the harsh realities of a malaria-endemic region.
