They together manage a team of highly respected Ivorian and French researchers. The team has two main roles: conducting infectious disease research to improve the health of the population and training young scientists in medical research. These multidisciplinary studies combine clinical medicine, biology and medical sciences with international research organizations.
Founded in 1994, the team today carries out studies in 15 countries, 11 of which are in Africa. Its research programs now include all types of infectious disease with epidemic potential. For example, thanks to its clinical research experience, this team was one of the rare teams in the world able to mobilize rapidly during the West African Ebola virus epidemic in 2014 to carry out therapeutic trials in Guinea.
Since 1996, the team has run 83 studies, published 438 scientific articles and trained 80 Master’s degree researchers and 30 PhD researchers. The team has also opened two large healthcare centers in Abidjan where thousands of people are being cared for today.
