Manipal-McGill Program for Infectious Diseases


The new Manipal-McGill Program for Infectious Diseases (MAP-ID) launched on August 13, 2016. Both McGill University and the Manipal Academy of Higher Education have strong reputations in infectious disease research especially in the areas of TB, HIV, and malaria.  The goals of the new program include fostering research collaborations between Manipal and McGill faculty; identifying promising infectious disease researchers and trainees at Manipal and supporting them to attend the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health; identifying promising McGill trainees and faculty to be under the mentorship of Manipal faculty; and establishing conferences, short courses and workshops taught jointly by Manipal and McGill faculty.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
