Overview of DGHI

The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) was created in 2006 to address health disparities in our local community and worldwide. Recognizing that many global health problems stem from economic, social, environmental, political and health care inequalities, DGHI brings together interdisciplinary teams to solve complex health problems and to train the next generation of global health scholars. More information on its leadership team, board of advisers, financing, and impact is at http://impact.globalhealth.duke.edu/.

Overview of the DGHI Malaria Program

The DGHI Malaria Program is a new, interdisciplinary malaria research and capacity-strengthening program led by DGHI faculty. The Malaria Program’s mission is to conduct innovative, translational malaria research that will lead to new tools and approaches for controlling and eliminating malaria and translate these scientific advances into practice through partnership with low- and middle-income country (LMIC) partners. With field sites in Western Kenya and Southeast Asia, including an NIH International Center of Excellence for Malaria Research based in Myanmar, China and Bangladesh, the DGHI Malaria Program offers an exciting career opportunity for a laboratory scientist with an interest in translational malaria research.
