We seek to create an environment where basic science and advanced technology are juxtaposed with the practical realities of disease control in low- and middle-income countries. As this cannot be achieved by any single institution working alone, we operate as a focal point for collaborative research across multiple institutions.

This connectivity and collaborative spirit is central to our work. The following case studies are not exhaustive but, in unique ways, they introduce the challenges we face and explain how we’re tackling them—illustrating the progress that has been made towards translating advances in genomic sciences into practical applications for improved health.
