Robert Black Lab

  • The Robert Black Lab conducts trials of vaccines, micronutrients and other nutritional interventions, particularly in infant and child populations. We also study the effectiveness of health programs, such as the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) approach, and evaluate preventive and curative health service programs in low- and middle-income countries. Another area of focus is the use of evidence in health care policy and programs.

    Research Areas: vaccines, child mortality, zinc, diarrhea, health care policy
