“McLagan’s leadership was instrumental in negotiating and facilitating what is clearly the most profound and important collaborative working relationship between the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the NIH, key Malian government leaders and executives of Bamako University. Her keen understanding of the African culture, international business relationships and US Government politics were instrumental in guiding all parties in the design of a collaborative infrastructure to strengthen Mali’s science capacity and cement the long-term partnership between NIAID and Mali. Ten years later all parties continue to operate under the critical agreements Pat so skillfully navigated. This effort was the first of its kind and Pat’s contributions have had a profound impact on NIAID’s ability to conduct and further research capacity globally. “
