Nurturing Bioinformatics in Low-Resourced Settings: The Case for Uganda

Several breakthroughs in public health have come from Uganda: the first identification and description of the mycobacterial Buruli ulcers, the Zika virus, and the Epstein-Barr virus and its role in Burkitt’s lymphoma. Work with HIV/AIDS led to investigation into heterosexual transmission of HIV-infection, using nevirapine to reducee mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and the association of male circumcision with a lower risk for HIV transmission in men.

NIAID Workshop 'Pharmacokinetics-Pharmacodynamics (PKPD) for Development of Therapeutics against Bacterial Pathogens'

The goal of this workshop is to discuss details and critical parameters of various PKPD methods and identify best practices and approaches for linking to human PK data and drug efficacy analyses. The use of PK-PD analyses to identify efficacious dose regimens may allow more rapid progress to pivotal clinical efficacy studies, which is of significant utility in development of antibacterial drugs.
