TrypanoGEN+: the genetic determinants of two neglected tropical diseases (Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) and Schistosomiasis)

The over-arching aim of this network is to improve the health of people living in some of the poorest countries in the world that carry a disproportionate burden of infectious diseases. Despite their importance, the study of many tropical diseases has lagged behind that of diseases of developed countries.

TBGENAfrica: An integrated approach to unraveling susceptibility to tuberculosis in Africa

Africa has the highest level of genetic diversity amongst all human populations. It also has the highest level of genetic diversity amongst populations of the pathogen that causes tuberculosis. Phylogenetic analysis shows that Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) emerged with modern humans in Africa

PAMGEN: Genetic interactions between human populations and malaria parasites in different environmental settings across Africa

Our overarching goal is to build a team of African scientists that can harness advanced genomic and computational technologies to better understand how variation in human, parasite and mosquito genomes, as well as in the ecological environment, impact on malaria at individuals and population level.

Ethical and Social Issues in Informed Consent Processes in African Genomic Research

Sub Saharan Africa (SSA), which bears 24% of the world’s burden of disease, is also home to: the highest human genetic diversity, vast array of environments, and a diversity of cultural practices. Whereas most of this disease burden has till recently been attributed to various infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS
