The Cambridge-Africa Programme hosted two more successful Visiting African Fellows Research Showcases at Hughes Hall on the 4th and 11th November 2015.
The showcases allow African Fellows, who are visiting under the Cambridge-Africa Programme, to give short presentations about their research done in collaboration with Cambridge researchers. The November showcases, with five presenters each week, featured an eclectic mix of research topics from Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) for the revitalization of endangered languages, Mechanisms of drug resistance in Malaria to Genomics and Bioinformatics of Infectious Pathogens.
Cambridge-Africa aims to strengthen Africa’s own capacity for a sustainable research and mentoring culture, by cultivating the talented individuals who will make this long-term goal a reality. Hughes Hall is one of four Cambridge Colleges that have linked up with the Cambridge-Africa Programme, to host African fellows visiting Cambridge.
