The recent Ebola epidemic demonstrated the capacity of Liberians to provide leadership in the development of a research agenda to address important questions regarding prevention and treatment of the disease as well as a better understanding of the long-term health consequences in survivors. This research agenda is important not only to the people of Liberia but also within the West African region and the rest of the world. The infusion of research resources can serve to further develop and expand medical research into other Liberian public health priorities. Research results can be used to not only inform public health decision making and public health policy but as a form of hypothesis generation for additional research. Moreover, success in implementing research projects and publishing research results demonstrates capacity to compete for grants and other external funding opportunities.
