The analyzes that will be developed in this international internship will allow us to understand the genetic diversity, population structure and the patterns of circulation and transmission of the parasite in the native communities of the province of Condorcanqui, information that will allow us to contribute to the surveillance and control of this disease, as part of a project led by UNTRM (Project with Contract No. PE501078584-2022-PROCIENCIA – MALARIA coordinated by Dr. Stella Maris Chenet Carrasco).

Harvard University in the United States is the second best in the world according to the World University Rankings 2023. This scholarship will provide the opportunity for our researcher to share with top-level international professors and researchers, disseminate the research that is being carried out at UNTRM , strengthen collaborations and exchanges with this university and in turn will allow it to become a knowledge multiplier agent upon its return to our institution. UNTRM continues its commitment to supporting scientific research and promoting academic excellence in Peru.
