Our lab group focuses on operational and implementation research studies aimed at identifying solutions for prevention and management of diseases of poverty, with a main emphasis on NTDs and schistosomiasis. The majority of our studies are conducted in Madagascar, where a high burden of schistosomiasis exists. Additional studies are conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa with a major focus on francophone-Africa.

In collaboration with the International Teaching and Capacity Building Unit, higher education and capacity building activities are coordinated by the Fusco group.
