Fabrice commenced his training at EVI on 8 January 2016. He obtained one MSc in Animal Biology at the faculty of Sciences Semlalia of the University of Marrakech in 2006, another MSc in Applied Biology at the University of Ouagadougou in 2009, and a PhD in Applied Biology in 2014 at the Polytechnic University of Bobo-Dioulasso. Since 2007 he is working at the Institut de Recherche en Sciences de la Santé (IRSS), Bobo-Dioulasso, and has been involved in several projects assessing antimalarial drug efficacy and Plasmodium falciparum drug resistance.
After completion of his EDCTP TDR Clinical Research and Development fellowship at EVI, Fabrice returned to IRSS as Assistant Professor. “The training I received at EVI was a great opportunity to learn the practical aspects of managing vaccine development projects, on both pre-clinical and clinical stages and to address the financial, legal and intellectual property management of vaccine projects. My fellowship also allowed me to attend several international scientific meetings and benefit from visiting three different European laboratories.”
