The Immunology laboratory is located at the Biotechnology Centre of Nkolbisson (University of Yaoundé 1, Cameroon), a specialized research unit founded in 1986 and located in Nkolbisson some 6 km to the South West of the Yaoundé 1 University Campus. The laboratory was created in 1991 by Prof Rose Leke with support from NIAID and the University of Yaounde I. Her initial goal was to provide basic information about the acquisition of immunity to malaria that will contribute to vaccine development and to the understanding of immunity to malaria during pregnancy. Now however, with more collaboration, the goal spans other infectious disease agents and communicable diseases. The Immunology laboratory is also very active in capacity building and has trained about 50 MDs and over 2 dozen graduate students with other competent institutions.
