Lars Henning MD PhD FACTM FFTM MPHAA is Associate Professor for Communicable Disease Control and Tropical Medicine in the Discipline of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

My scientific and academic career has concentrated on clinical research in infectious and neglected tropical diseases witih an emphasis on HIV, TB, Leishmaniasis and Cholera/Diarrhoeal Diseases. I have worked serveral years in leading global health institutions (Swiss Tropical  and Public Health Institute, Basel, International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh,  Dhaka, Ifakara Health Institute, Ifakara, and Infectious Diseases Institute, Kampala).I have profound expertise in translational clinical research in high- and low income countries. Many of my projects in Asia and Africa focussed on the strenghtening of laboratory capacity and the transfer of skills to provide best possible care for patients in different settings.

I percieve the link between innovative research and clinical services as crucial in the process of innovation, validation and application of health solutions, Regular teaching and training activities as well as curriculum development at different levels have been a fundamental cornerstoner of my approach for sustainable capacity in past and present projects.
