Project summary

Jean Louis is a malariologist working in the Department of Medical Parasitology at the University Cheikh Anta Diop, Dakar. This department, headed by Professor Oumar Gaye, is a reference research centre with a leading role in both fundamental and operational research in Senegal. Jean Louis’s Fellowship is focused on measuring the impact of seasonal malaria chemoprevention on the incidence of malaria and on child deaths. He will monitor the effects of this new strategy for malaria control on the sensitivity of Plasmodium falciparum and on natural acquisition of immunity to malaria, in collaboration with Dr Paul Milligan, an epidemiologist from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Intermediate Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
