Study at MVRU


MVRU offers opportunities to study various aspects of malaria research, including epidemiology and ecology, spatial and temporal dynamics, molecular methods of disease diagnostics, drug resistance surveillance and mechanisms, transmission blocking vaccines (TMB vaccines). Students will receive advanced training in spatial genetics, modeling and omics technologies such as genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. With our strong network of collaborators, MVRU’s students are guided by experts internationally as well as in Thailand. Students will also have access to various training workshops in the following themes: statistics, modeling and spatial genetics, disease diagnostics, molecular and sero-epidemiology.
