Makerere University and University of Minnesota Departments of Pediatrics: Research and Training Collaborations

Collaborations between Makerere University and University of Minnesota Pediatric faculty began in 2002, when Drs. Chandy John (then at Case Western Reserve University) and Richard Idro collaborated on a study of clinical presentations of malaria in Kabale, Uganda. Subsequently, collaboration continued with Dr. Idro, Dr. Opoka and Dr. Paul Bangirana on study of neurocognitive deficits after cerebral malaria, done in collaboration with Dr. Michael Boivinat of Michigan State University). This study has led to several ongoing research studies and a training grant as outlined below;

Pathogenesis of cognitive/neurologic deficits in central nervous malaria
This supplement supports increased capabilities for data management, training in development and critical care, and an increase in study sample size. Read more about PRIOR MU-UMN PEDIATRIC COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH AND TRAINING GRANTS

ACTIVE MU-UMN PEDIATRIC COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH AND TRAINING GRANTS

R01 NS055349          John, Chandy C (PI), Idro Richard (Co-PI)           04/15/08 - 03/31/13 NIH/NINDS
Pathogenesis of cognitive/neurologic deficits in central nervous malaria
This study seeks to establish the areas, frequency and severity of cognitive and neurologic function affected by cerebral malaria in children of different ages (18 months to 4 years and 5 to 12 years) and to identify the immunological/inflammatory and genetic factors associated with cognitive and neurologic deficits in children with severe malaria.
