VAVANY - study Part 2: Grant proposal submitted to DFG

Mar 3, 03:46 pm

Due to the success of the first part of the VAVANY-study we decided to continue our research in Madagascar/ Africa. We are planing on conducting a further study on the eastern coast of Madagascar in a rural area north of Toamasina (Tamatave) with the same study design looking for normal lung function. In addition to last time’s investigations we would like to look more in depth into bronchial asthma and allergic diseases in a study population of 8 – 12 year old children.

This project needs monetary assistance since it exceeds our personal financial budget. Therefore we asked the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Bonn, Germany’s largest research funding organization) to grant us research funding.
