The Berlin-Canberra alliance addresses fundamental issues in malaria through an International Research Training Program (IRTG 2290). Molecular insights into Plasmodium infections can generate novel evidence-based strategies to develop curative and prophylactic drugs, and immunization strategies that elicit lasting protection against the disease.
The program covers four research areas:
All research projects will involve work carried out in both Berlin and Canberra and PhD students will graduate with a dual PhD from both the Humboldt University and the Australian National University. PhD students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in a customized training program that includes voluntary internships and that will supports students in acquiring critical skills to prepare for increasingly globalized and competitive public and private job markets.
The IRTG 2290 is a member program of the Graduate School at the IRI Life Sciences and funded by the German Research Council.

IRTG2290 students are welcome to attend the 28th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Parasitology (DGP) March 21-24 and should plan to attend the ZIBI PhD Retreat April 12&13.
