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.
- 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
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.
