Global Approach to Biological Research, Infectious diseases and Epidemics in Low-income countries


One of the essential missions of the GABRIEL Network is dedicated to research and training in the field of laboratory-based surveillance of infectious diseases.

Its main objective is to carry out common research projects and epidemiological studies focusing two priorities: Lower Respiratory Track Infections and TB drug resistance. The purpose of this newsletter is to give all members of the GABRIEL network access to the same information and thus to promote exchanges, collaborations and partnerships.
