Rodolphe Mérieux Laboratories

Fondation Mérieux has set up an international network of research laboratories at the core of infectious outbreaks, with the support of Fondation Christophe et Rodolphe Mérieux: the Rodolphe Mérieux Laboratories.

Already established in Mali, Cambodia, Laos, Haiti Madagascar and Lebanon, they provide a means to conduct high-level scientific research.

The Rodolphe Mérieux Laboratories focus on the following areas:

  • Perform complex medical tests which are not currently available locally, without competing with existing local laboratories.

  • Partner of international research programmes, particularly in the field of multiresistant tuberculosis and respiratory infections, and of national research programmes in the field of HIV / AIDS, hepatitis and neglected tropical diseases.

  • Improve biological training by setting up long-term partnerships between public hospital laboratories and universities.

  • Perform complex medical tests which are not currently available locally, without competing with existing local laboratories.

Located near or as part of medical schools, they are available to students for work on pathologies specific to their country.
