JCPiL: UK:Brazil Joint Partnership in Leishmaniasis

The UK:Brazil Joint Centre Partnership in Leishmaniasis (JCPiL) is a large collaborative project between UK universities (York, Durham and Glasgow) and universities in Brazil (University of São Paulo, the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and the Federal University of Piauí).

Researchers within YBRI’s Immunology, Haematology and Infection theme will work together to drive this project forward, and will fund five interrelated projects and three workshops to promote research at the interface of basic and clinical science, extend existing collaborations between UK and Brazil and develop new partnerships and interdisciplinary ways of working.

The project is funded by the Newton Fund and FAPESP, a Brazilian funding agency.
