Overview

Abstract

The purpose of this five year program is to provide high quality training to qualified scientists from Bangladesh so as to improve local capacity to carry out research in the area of childhood infectious diseases, with specific emphasis on maternal and neonatal infections, and to strengthen collaborative ties between the participating US and Bangladeshi institutions. The program proposes to provide long-term training of three pre-doctoral students (two doctoral and one masters) and two post-doctoral students as well as shorter term (non-degree) training in specific methodologies appropriate for support of maternal and child health research. The training offered will be multi-disciplinary and include both biomedical and behavioral research, with strong research methodological underpinnings. The training will be integrally linked to the research studies currently being conducted by Johns Hopkins and local institution investigators in Bangladesh.
