Past Studies

  • A community-based trial on the impact of insecticide-treated bed nets on childhood morbidity and mortality in an area of intense and perennial malaria transmission in western Kenya,
  • The interaction of malaria and HIV in pregnant women and the immuno-epidemiology of malaria in western Kenya,
  • The Asembo Bay Cohort Project.

Ongoing Studies

  • A demographic surveillance system (DSS) in the previous bed net study area aimed at establishing a high quality surveillance system in a population of 135,000 and provide an infrastructure that will yield reliable demographic
    data and serve as a platform to evaluate the impact of public health interventions on morbidity and mortality.
  • Population genetics of malaria vectors.
  • The effects of climate change on human health.
  • The epidemiology and immunology of malaria epidemics in the highlands.
  • Immunology of malaria during pregnancy.
  • The genetic basis of severe malarial anemia in young children.
  • A study to assess the impact of co-trimoxazole prophylaxis on development of anti-folate resistance in pathogens of public health importance including P. falciparum, S. pneumoniae, and enteric bacteria.
  • A study on the In-vivo response of P. falciparum to antimalarial treatment in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected individuals.
  • A study on the In-vivo response of P. falciparum to antimalarial treatment in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected individuals.
  • The effect of folic acid supplementation on efficacy of sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine in pregnant women in western Kenya
  • Surveillance for severe diarrhea in western Kenya.
  • Etiology of diarrhea among HIV-infected adults in western Kenya.
  • Evaluation of studies that examine the genetic and immunological determinants of resistance to schistosomiasis in children in Western Kenya.
  • A prospective cohort study to assess HIV and STD incidence in rural high-risk adolescents, teenagers, and adults
  • Descriptive cross-sectional studies of HIV/AIDS/STI prevalence, risk behaviors, and an assessment of parental attitudes toward adolescent sexuality, in rural western Kenya, Nyanza Province.
  • Efficacy of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) beginning late in pregnancy and continuing for 6 months post-partum and rapid weaning in reducing the risk of peri- and post-natal HIV transmission.
