Science Capacity Building and Development of Novel Diagnostics

The Stanley Lab partners with the Alliance for Global Health and Science (http://cend.globalhealth.berkeley.edu/alliance/) at UC Berkeley to strengthen the capacity for basic science and public health research in developing countries.  Students in the Stanley Lab participate in developing workshops on laboratory based skills and then teach them on the ground in Kampala, Uganda. Through this work we have also developed scientific partnerships to investigate questions in Mtb pathogenesis and epidemiology.  In addition, we have built partnerships between research in the US and Uganda to develop and test novel diagnostics platforms for Malaria, HIV and Mtb.
