The future of African science depends on its ‘home-grown’ talent – research for Africa led by Africans. To build scientific leadership and ownership in sub-Saharan Africa, EDCTP provides fellowship support at all career stages. These schemes provide opportunities for promising researchers to establish careers in the region, while having the advantage of links to regional and international networks and access to cutting-edge technology and the latest scientific thinking.
These fellowships are part of the broader EDCTP strategy to support development of African health research capacity which also include investments to support four regional Networks of Excellence and activities that strengthen the necessary ethical, regulatory and legal frameworks of clinical research.
