Epidemiology with distinction for Fabienne Krauer and Eliane Rohner

Fabienne and Eliane both graduated with distinction in their masters in epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on March 5th 2016.  Fabienne received the University of London International Programmes 150th Anniversary Prize for the highest mark in the epidemiology distance learning programme.

Fabienne’s success is even more impressive when you know that she took the LSHTM course whilst studying for her masters in Biomedical Science at the University of Bern. Fabienne’s two masters theses examined different aspects of the 2013-2015 Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa. She is now working on Zika virus, the latest emerging infectious disease outbreak. Follow Fabienne on Twitter @fabikrauer

Eliane’s master thesis was about invasive cervical cancer incidence rates and associated risk factors in HIV-positive women who initiated antiretroviral therapy in Johannesburg, South Africa. She works with the International epidemiologic Databases to Evaluate AIDS Southern Africa (IeDEA-SA) project, studying the epidemiology of oncogenic viruses and HIV-related cancers.

Fabienne and Eliane join ISPM’s increasing number of ongoing students and alumni who take LSHTM distance learning courses or attend the courses in London.
