Strengthening research capacity

Postdoctoral Awards

Following the recommendations of the Wellcome Trust visiting panel in Moshi early in 2013, the focus of the first postdoctoral awards has been on supporting successful MCDC PhD students to gain experience away from their home institution and/or gain new skills that will help them in developing a more substantial research proposal.  Eleven postdoctoral awards have been made and are underway.

The successful fellows and their projects are listed below:
