Beginning a Collaboration With LIBR

We welcome the opportunity to work with organizations around the world to further scientific discovery relevant to disease indemic to Liberia and the region in the furtherance of our research mission. Areas of particular interest are:

Arbovirus research.
Filovirus research.
Malarial research.
Vector and small mammal surveillance.
As well as other neglected tropical diseases.

We strive to make the process to work with LIBR as transparent as possible. While we do receive subsidies from the government of Liberia our continued growth is dependant on monies derived from grants. We assess a 20% administrative fee/operational cost for large projects that are primarily conducted at LIBR or our satellite facilities which maintains our facility, staff, and invests in future capabilities. For smaller projects we also will do contract work based on an invoice system for work conducted.

Protocols for the intended research should be submitted to the LIBR Director to intiate the approval process with the LIBR board of governors and LIBR IRB (if applicable) before work can begin. Lodging on the LIBR campus may be available depending on the renovation status and current occupancy. Please make all collaborative inquires to:

Fatorma K. Bolay, Director
Liberian Institute for Biomedica Research (LIBR)
Charlesville, Margibi County, Liberia
