Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases and Diseases of Poverty
This KAA engages in developing, testing, implementing and monitoring approaches for the control of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and Diseases of Poverty. The University of Basel together with its associate institutes, mainly Swiss TPH, and the links to the private sector, is a key player in product-oriented research. We contribute to the R&D process of vaccines, drugs and diagnostic tests with the focus on diseases of poverty and NTDs by innovative basic research interlinked with preclinical studies. Novel interventions are tested and implemented through joint clinical research with African partners ranging from phase I up to phase IV.
