Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) call for proposals webinar

The webinar is brought to you by the African Academy of Sciences and the NEPAD Agency’s Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA), Wellcome Trust and the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Africa NCD Open Lab Initiative.

In February 2017, AESA and its collaborators launched a call for proposals for the Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa), a major genomic research programme. Up to £2.5 million will be given to each successful collaborative project with lead institutions based in Africa to research on the use of genomics and cutting edge approaches to determine the complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors contributing to health and diseases of importance to Africa. The application deadline is 24 March.

This webinar will:

  • Introduce the H3Africa programme and outline AESA’s role
  • Outline the main requirements of the call for proposals
  • Provide an opportunity for prospective applicants to ask any questions related to the call.
