Strengthening research capacity

Two more MCDC PhDs!

Dr Badara Samb presenting his research at MIM 2013, Durban
8 January 2014

Two MCDC PhD students registered for their PhDs at the Université Cheikh Anta Diop, Dakar, successfully defended their theses at the end of December. Dr Badara Samb's PhD project focused on the Anopheles funestus mosquito in the Senegal river basin characterising the population and looking at its role in malaria transmission. Dr Youssoupha Ndiaye's PhD project investigated the role of Community Health Workers (CHWs) in malaria treatment and prevention in Saraya health district, a remote rural area of Senegal. 

Congratulations to Dr Ndiaye and Dr Samb! Both researchers are now working on proposals for postdoctoral fellowships.

MCDC now has five PhD graduates with more of our students expected to submit and defend over the coming months.
