Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
With a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Vaccine Development used TECHLAB® diagnostics for a three-year study of diarrheal diseases among young children in developing areas of Africa and Asia.
The Global Enteric Multi-Center Study (GEMS) is the most extensive study of childhood diarrheal diseases ever conducted, with more than 22,000 subjects from seven sites. Researchers evaluated about 40 pathogens to determine the most common causes of diarrheal diseases.
