A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Developing a bespoke Pan-African capacity strengthening programme

The Center for Global Health, in collaboration with the Department of International Affairs and the Institut Pasteur International Network (IPIN), are currently working on developing a bespoke Pan-African capacity strengthening programme with the goal to support health research and training in Africa. In addition to building local expertise, it will aim to strengthen the Pan-African research collaboration by linking research groups across the continent, especially between the Francophone and Anglophone regions.

The aim is to offer a bespoke, demand – led support platform, based on the existing research strengths, current and future research ambitions, as well as identified skill gaps at Institutions of Higher Education across Africa, developed in collaboration with relevant stakeholders on the continent and beyond.

The programme will focus on the next generation of researches, particularly post-graduates and post-docs, and their career development and employability. Furthermore, it will aspire to better integrate researchers into the existing health research networks in Africa.

The capacity strengthening programme will concentrate on two research priority areas: emerging infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), with Malaria being the third possible area of research. Training opportunities within these priority domains include bioinformatics and biostatistics, molecular genetics (including human genetics), training on –omics technology, but also lab training in areas such as microbiology.

CV

Hans was trained as a parasitologist and medical entomologist at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK, and the University of Tübingen, Germany, where he received his PhD in 1992. During his research career in the field of infectious tropical diseases, he undertook substantial field research on the transmission of river blindness, in mainly Francophone West and Central Africa. Hans has also worked in a number of laboratories in Brazil, USA, France, Sweden, Germany, Hungary, and the UK. In 1999, Hans decided to switch careers, and started his new post at the Wellcome Trust, mainly working with science communities outside the UK (India, Central Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America). In 2006, Hans was recruited by the Royal Society, to develop the Society’s capacity strengthening programme for sub-Saharan Africa. This programme was initially focussed on Ghana and Tanzania, resulting in the Leverhulme – Royal Society Africa Award scheme, which was successfully launched in October 2008. This was followed by a more ambitious pan-sub-Saharan Africa programme, launched in November 2012, after obtaining substantial funding from the Department for International Development (DFID). In 2014 he was promoted to Head of Grants of the Royal Society. From 2015 to 2017, Hans worked as Chief Operating Officer for Cambridge University Health Partners before joining Institut Pasteur as Deputy Director of the Centre for Global Health and Chargé de Mission at the Department of International Affairs, in October 2017.
