Building Capacity in Pakistan: Training in the Use of Polymerase Chain Reaction

Building Capacity in Pakistan: Training in the Use of Polymerase Chain Reaction

“The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is supporting a training program for early career scientists in Pakistan to develop and improve advanced molecular-based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques. PCR methods improve capacity for targeted surveillance and detection of high threat pathogens and outbreaks, and reduce the need to culture and store infectious material. The training will be conducted in collaboration with the National Institute of Health in Pakistan and the Kenya Medical Research Institute.”
