This project will ensure scientists in Kenya can pursue world-class science by giving them access to appropriate scientific equipment and advanced training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

At Kenyatta University, there are currently more than 3,600 students enrolled in Chemistry and Pharmacy, who can barely be trained in brand new empty labs because of the lack of funds to buy equipment. This project will change the scale and sophistication of research they can pursue, and obtain a hands-on scientific education. Ultimately, this research should lead to real solutions to diseases and other public health problems facing our scientists' communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

- Fully equip teaching and research labs at Kenyatta University - Send scientists from the U.S. to train colleagues and help install equipment in Kenya - Bring Kenyan scientists to Boston for intensive training

Potential Long Term Impact

The success of this project will ensure a hands-on science education for thousands of students, and better support and training for their professors to make needed discoveries in critical areas of health.
