Clinical-epidemiological studies

The Research research group Malaria and Infectious Diseases Epidemiology in cooperation with partners mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia conducts clinico-epidemiological studies. The focus lies on the influence of genetic host polymorphisms on susceptibility to and manifestation of malaria and other infectious diseases as well as, treatment trials and resistance markers, as well as malaria in pregnancy. Further fields of work comprise the epidemiology of intestinal parasites (helminths, protozoa), dengue fever, spread and import of resistant bacteria as well as type 2 diabetes among Africans.
