Congratulations to our partners at the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE), who just celebrated the inauguration of their new Institute for Tropical Medicine and Global Health! Thanks to your support and a shipment of Instrumental Access equipment, the Dominican Republic now has its first research institute dedicated to emerging, tropical, and infectious diseases. Our Global Partnerships Manager Melissa Wu was a guest at the inauguration on Feb. 1, 2017, and reports that the Institute is the result of years of planning. Its origins can be traced to a decade ago, when UNIBE began integrating research into the fabric of the university.
