Call for Applications: TDR Clinical Research & Development Fellowships - EXTENDED DEADLINE

Researchers from low and middle income countries (LMICs) are invited to apply for the fourth round of the WHO/TDR Career Development Fellowship (CDF) on clinical research & development (clinical R&D). Successful candidates will be placed with leading product development institutions, including pharmaceutical companies that are participating in the fellowship programme (“host institutions”). The goal is to develop human resources to promote high quality clinical R&D in LMICs. It is expected that qualified professionals will enhance LMICs’ product development capacity on diagnostics, drugs and vaccines for infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor and marginalized populations.
The host institutions will train individuals in situ in order to develop specialized skills not readily taught in academic centres, including R&D project management, regulatory requirements and good health research practices. On returning to their home institutions, the fellows are expected to become an important resource for institutional capacity development to undertake and manage clinical research in accordance with international regulatory requirements and standards.

The deadline has been extended since the call was issued so all applications must be received by 7th October 2012 at the latest.

The 2013 Gordon Conference on Tropical Infectious Diseases: from bench to field

The 2013 Gordon Conference on Tropical Infectious Diseases: from bench to field, will present cutting edge research on the most prevalent and medically important tropical infectious diseases (TIDs), with special emphasis on research areas that have made significant recent progress. This will be the third time that this particular GRC has been held, and it will retain the general thematic organization of the very successful conference last held in 2011. The intent is to gather a multidisciplinary community of scientists discussing basic and field based or translational research in TIDs.
