Strengthening research capacity

Centre for Medical Parasitology, University of Copenhagen

The University of Copenhagen was inaugurated on June 1st 1479. With over 37,000 students and more than 7,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is the largest institution of research and education in Denmark. The purpose of the University is to conduct research and provide further education to the highest academic level.

The Centre for Medical Parasitology (CMP) was founded in 1991 and formalises a close collaboration between research groups at the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology, University of Copenhagen, and the Departments of Infectious Diseases (DID), and Clinical Microbiology (DCM) at Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet).

Research at CMP is centred on malaria. Around 50 scientists and technicians are affiliated to CMP, a large proportion of whom are engaged in graduate as well as postgraduate training. More than 20 African CMP-supported students have obtained PhD degrees at the University of Copenhagen.
