We have unparalleled opportunities for research and collaboration with these Moldovan institutions, including the support of the faculty at these institutions, university administration, and the Ministry of Health.  The possibilities are endless and the climate and culture of Moldova are pleasant--they are eager go work with us and the west after so many years of Soviet Occupation. We have been funding our research so far with PSC/CUNY grants.
