Verena Carrara

Research Clinician

Verena is a research clinician based in SMRU since 2001. The focus of her work was initially on malaria epidemiology: evaluating the impact of large scale deployment of early diagnosis and treatment with artemisin-based combination therapy; monitoring the changes in efficacy of 3-day mefloquine-artesunate treatment; measuring the malaria incidence in the pregnant population.

Her work later shifted on maternal and child health, in particular the role of maternal infections and nutritional status in relation to birth outcome, child’s growth, anaemia and neurocognitive development in the 2 first years of life.
