KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme

The KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP) is based within a KEMRI centre (the Centre for Geographic Medical Research - Coast). Our core activities are funded by the Wellcome Trust. We conduct integrated epidemiological, social, laboratory and clinical research in parallel, with results feeding into local and international health policy. Research capacity in Africa remains very low; in part, due to the failure of many capacity building initiatives to address long-term sustainability. Emphasis is often laid on training alone without regard to the full career path needed to generate research leaders. KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP) has therefore developed a framework for the long-term development of local research leadership. The framework aims to attract talented people, provide them with high quality research training and support their career development beyond training in order to retain them in the region. Earlier on we focused on the attracting and training aspect of the framework. From 2013 the emphasis has shifted to support for postdoctoral career progression and research leadership development in order to nurture the next generation of East African research leaders.
