Opportunities for training and research in a variety of areas ranging from basic studies of the mechanism of disease to studies in public health, epidemiology, diagnostics, therapeutics or vaccine development, are available through this program.
The term of the Fellowship is for one year. The start date of the will be determined by arrangement between the host institution and the Fellow.
