Central America

Map of Central America

Among the many compelling UCSF projects in Central America, studies of the genetics of biopolar disease in Costa Rica and viral pathogens associated with dengue-like symptoms in Nicaragua stand out.

Much of UCSF's work in this region is in Mexico. Projects there range from efforts to develop new drugs to treat schistosomiasis, to clinical trials for hepatitis C medication, to capacity building around cardiovascular disease policy, 

Related studies are looking at the health risks of immigrants from Central America to the United States.
