Additional Clinical Research

HJFMRI collaborates with U.S. and international partners at clinical sites around the world to conduct observational and epidemiological studies to help characterize disease patterns and transmission, identify at-risk population and track health outcomes. It also works with these partners in the execution of clinical trials to evaluate medical countermeasures with global importance. These research endeavors have allowed HJFMRI to build community-level relationships with stakeholders and participants and build local infrastructure, capacity and expertise.
