Tropical Disease Research Program and International Research Training Course

Ecuador experience

Since early 2000, teams of student and faculty biologists, health practitioners, and development specialists have conducted research on Chagas disease and its transmission cycles in several areas of Ecuador. Students with academic interests as diverse as microbiology to anthropology to Spanish language to communication studies have participated in this initiative. The Tropical Disease Research and Service Learning program is a result of 18+ years of collaboration between Ohio University and the Center for Research on Health in Latin America. We aim to reach underserved populations with state-of-the-art training and service learning opportunities to help control the transmission of Chagas disease and other infectious and chronic conditions affecting populations in Ecuador and Latin America.
