To support clinical trials in Western Kenya, we began the process of installing our Plasmodium 18S rRNA RT-PCR assay at the well-equipped CDC-KEMRI site in Kisumu, Kenya in late Sept 2016. This ongoing project will involve training of staff with an aim to support malaria vaccine trials in the region. Thanks to all involved! We look forward to working together on this project.
