Clinical research group in Lambaréné

Short description

The CERMEL (Centre de Recherche Médical de Lambaréné) in Gabon is one of the leading establishments for malaria research in Africa. Clinical trials on vaccines and agents are tested according to the same approved guidelines that are used in Germany. A clinical research group was established within the CERMEL to enable the DZIF to conduct malaria trials on the ground in Africa where the disease predominantly occurs. The group is supported by Dr Ayola Akim Adegnika who holds the first DZIF professorship in Africa.
