Under the supervision of the ILRI Scientist, the Research Fellow will contribute to the project Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) Vaccinology.
The overall objective of the project is to better understand the effect of using multiple vaccines concurrently on the immune response to the individual vaccines, since this is seen as a way to improve vaccine adoption in small ruminants among smallholder livestock keepers.
The project will aim at understanding if different types of vaccines such as bacterial and viral can be administered concurrently.
