The Project

Taenia solium cysticercosis/taeniosis (TSCT), an emerging but neglected zoonosis, represents a potentially eradicable disease complex with huge impact on human and animal health in many countries of sub-Saharan Africa. To fill gaps on the way to control/elimination of TSCT in these countries an interdisciplinary research platform will be developed integrating basic science, epidemiological, neurological, immunological and sociocultural research activities, capacity building and international networking.
