ITI grants 2019

RSTMH has partnered with ITI to support trachoma research as part of our small grants programme. ITI are funding four selected small grants of up to £5,000.

The 2019 grant awardees are:

Shannon Das on point-of-care diagnostics for trachoma 

Harry Pickering on chlamydia trachomatis antibodies 

Ruth Wandia Maina on MDA for trachoma and soil-transmitted helminths 

Ailie Robinson on exploiting fly feeding behaviours 

Dr Paul Emerson, ITI Director said: 

"These grants will generate new knowledge of direct relevance to trachoma elimination and can also help launch the careers of the next generation of NTD warriors. The first opportunity is often the most important for junior researchers and we look forward to continuing this partnership."
