International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) is inviting applications for 2 PhD scholarships from Sub-Sahara Africa to work on Schitosomiasis, a neglected tropical disease funded by a research grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) website indicates that Schitosomiasis is caused by parasitic worms in fresh water. Human who come into contact with snails in fresh water already infected by these worms are at risk of death.
