About HerpeZ Limited
HerpeZ is a not-for-profit medical research organisation in Zambia founded in 2012 by Dr Matthew Bates (PhD) and Dr Kunda Musonda (MBChB, PhD). They are based at the University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, Zambia, and they are interested in a range of infectious disease threats, which are important causes of morbidity and mortality, for which current diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are inadequate. Their goal is to generate knowledge that informs on improved diagnostic or treatment strategies, resulting in better outcomes and saving lives.
