The Cambridge-Africa Programme links up Cambridge researchers across a range of subject areas to colleagues researching similar interests in Africa. This is resulting in many mutually-beneficial Cambridge-Africa research collaborations (e.g. via the CAPR Ex initiative), supported by our ALBORADA Research Fund. In addition, capacity building in health research occurs through the Wellcome Trust-funded DELTAS Africa THRiVE-2 and MUII -plus initiatives and our Wellcome Trust-Cambridge Centre for Global Health Research (WT-CCGHR), all of which are playing a key role in capitalising on the extensive basic biomedical and health-related research capacity across many departments and research institutes at the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, to help combat African and global health research challenges. For more information about the Programme and how to get involved, visit http://www.cambridge-africa.cam.ac.uk/, and sign up for the newsletter.
