Cleveland Plain Dealer Profiles Case Western Reserve University’s Center For Global Health And Diseases

The Cleveland Plain Dealer profiles the work of researchers at Case Western Reserve University’s Center for Global Health and Diseases, writing, “When they’re not in Cleveland, they work in parts of the world that are remote, poor, and often road-less. They see people suffering and dying from treatable and preventable illnesses. Their goal, quite simply, is ‘to make life better in developing countries.'” The newspaper notes “[t]he center, which is currently involved in 32 ongoing projects overseas, has secured more than $80 million in funding, mostly from [NIH] and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, since its creation.” The newspaper details some of the center’s research, highlighting Director James Kazura’s “decades-long search” for methods to eliminate lymphatic filariasis, a mosquito-borne illness affecting more than 100 million people worldwide, and noting his latest research recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine (Zeltner, 8/29).
