Compiling Geodata to Fight Tropical Disease

Parasitology and epidemiology expert Dr. Uwemedimo Ekpo is researching how to improve prevention and medical care in his home country of Nigeria, where he has been granted an EFINTD Senior Fellowship. In the laboratory of the biological department of the University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria, Uwemedimo Ekpo and his team analyze urine samples from patients in areas where parasitic worms cause schistosomiasis. The results of their research enrich data bases on tropical diseases and are the basis of geostatistical maps.
