Visiting Scholars

The GHIDR Center welcomes visiting scholars from around the world. The Center has a history of successful collaboration with partners from Brazil, Panama, Sierra Leone, Thailand, England, and the Netherlands. Some scholars are regular collaborators of our research groups while other come to learn or teach specific techniques. All of these individuals bring a unique perspective and diverse knowledge base that complements to existing research programs. The GHIDR center recognizes the importance of collaboration and sharing of knowledge for the advancement of scientific research and we encourage such partnerships whenever possible.

Some of the institutions with whom we have exchanged personnel include:

  • Fundação Oswaldo Cruz Foundation – Brazil
  • Gorgas Memorial Research Institute – Panama
  • Armed Forces Research Institute of Medical Sciences (AFRIMS) – Thailand
  • The Sanger Institute – England 

Scholars interested in visiting the GHIDR should begin by contacting the faculty member of interest to discuss funding, and administrative requirements.
