EDCTP-TDR-CIHR Ebola Virus Disease Workshop


Wednesday the 10th and Thursday the 11th February 2016, CLIMVIB took part to the EDCTP-TDR-CIHR Ebola Virus Disease Workshop held at Noguchi Memorial Institute of Medical Research (NMIMR), University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana.

The workshop, chaired by Dr. Thomas Nyirenda (EDCTP) and Dr. Marc Ouelette (CIHR) has been a forum of discussion for grantees recently selected to conduct a range of research – from basic science to implementation research, including capacity development and models of clinical care – and the occasion to share experience and ideas for the future.

The 32 collaborators from the 18 grantees who met in Ghana presented their project plans and shared contacts and ideas, creating a preliminary network with the aim of maximizing each project’s impact via strengthening the cooperation among them.

Prof. Maria Rita Gismondo, Dr. Giovanna Fotia and Dr. Luca Vitali, in representation of CLIMVIB, together with Dr. Maria Vittoria Cossu, from ASST Fatebenefratelli Sacco and Dr. Emmanuel Ochola, from St. Mary’s Lacor Hospital, presented ENDORSE (ENhancing individual and institutional infectious Disease Outbreaks ResponSe capacities of healthcare professionals to mitigate infectious Emergencies in Northern Uganda region).

The workshop has been a real success! We thank all participants for this very positive and fruitful meeting.
