Our team is working on multiple projects, all aimed to increase knowledge and screening of Chagas disease among the community and healthcare providers.
As part of a 5-year cooperative agreement funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the INSECT study aims to bolster Chagas knowledge in the medical community and roll out screening programs for high-risk populations. One particular population of interest is women of childbearing age.
Our team is in the process of developing a biorepository using biological samples collected from patients with Chagas disease. The aim of our biorepository is to create a large, geographically diverse collection of these samples and their associated clinical information to drive future research in Chagas disease diagnostics.
