Laboratory Training

Through its Laboratory Research Division (LRD), RITM shares its expertise to other laboratories through various trainings aimed at building laboratory technical capacity in infectious disease microbiology.

Our regular trainings range from basic workshops on specimen collection to performance of specialized laboratory tests, from biosafety to ethical use of laboratory animals in research. Various platforms are offered, from virus isolation to bacterial detection; from microscopy to serologic and molecular techniques. Participants shall benefit much from experts from the laboratory division’s National Reference Laboratories and Core Facilities.
