Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases: Training & Research Support Program

Bioinformatics for Infectious Diseases is a program developed in collaboration with Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), Ghana’s leading biomedical research institute at the University of Ghana. The program is designed to introduce students, clinicians, and researchers to the role and the applications of bioinformatics to the study of pathogenic microorganisms and their interaction with the host and vectors. The program will be led by Omics Logic mentors who have considerable expertise with virology, immunology and bioinformatics. A group of research participants from the University of Ghana will be led by their Principal Investigator: Dr. Anita Ghansah (aghansah2013@gmail.com) and Dr. Bright Abu. and other researchers from the Noguchi Memorial Research Institute and Rhodes University (SA).
