As a pediatrician, with special interest in infectious disease epidemiology and public health, Dr. Bassat has attempted to combine his clinical work with biomedical research in those diseases that most affect the poor and vulnerable. Originally based in Manhiça, Mozambique, he worked there as a pediatrician and a clinical researcher, participating in different clinical trials related to malaria prevention and treatment. He was also particularly interested in the study of the burden, trends and characterization of malaria in children admitted to hospital, and the overlapping symptomatology between malaria and other common infectious diseases. While his work was initially focused in P. falciparum malaria and children, he has widened his scope of interest to the study of Plasmodium vivax. In recent years, he has also spent important efforts describing the epidemiology and control of Yaws in Papua New Guinea. He has also conducted work on the description of the epidemiology and etiology of respiratory infections (viral and bacterial) both in Mozambique and in Morocco. Currently, his main project is related to the validation and implementation of Minimally Invasive Autopsy (MIA) tools for the post-mortem investigation of Causes of death in the developing world.
