PAMAfrica students - Next-generation of African researchers

To support the effective conduct of PAMAfrica’s three clinical programs, Work Package 4 focuses on strengthening both research capacity at trial sites and the research capability of African scientists. The goal is to build a scientific network to nurture the next generation of African researchers through the malaria PhDs from University of Tübingen. Institute for Tropical Medicine (ITM) and MScs from the Wits University School of epidemiology and biostatistics.   

Ten candidates, one PhD and one MSc from each of the five participating partner sites, have been selected to enroll in long-term academic training to set them on a career path as leaders in scientific research.

Below is a video of seven PAMAfrica students introducing themselves and sharing why they are interested in malaria.
