International Study

Dr. Bruno Travi is directing first year medical student Kevin Grabski in a study on visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in Posadas city, Argentina during the summer 2013. Kevin is working with a multidisciplinary research team that is surveying patients who were treated in the past for VL to determine their knowledge and practices regarding VL transmission, including actions to eliminate breeding places of sand fly vectors and protecting dogs (the domestic reservoir). This project is part of a larger goal to understand the factors that led to the recent emergence of VL in northern Argentina.
