Makerere University School of Biomedical Sciences (Uganda) in conjunction with Case Western Reserve University (USA) received a grant from the U.S. NIH – Fogarty International Center to train Ugandans in biomedical basic science.
This program will train Ugandans in basic science of HIV and its related complications. It is aimed at building a critical mass of Basic Scientists in Uganda that will be able to foster and create new frontiers of HIV research as far as virology,
pathology, immunobiology, molecular biology and its interactions with host and opportunistic infections are concerned.
Trainees will be expected to develop and maintain a productive career devoted to HIV and/or its complications. This program is currently soliciting for applications from suitably qualified Ugandans for Scholarships that will lead to the award of a health-related Master’s degree in Basic Science (e.g., Physiology, Pharmacology, Human Anatomy, Biochemistry, Medical Illustration, Pathology, Immunology and Clinical Microbiology) and Master of Medicine (Pathology and Medical Microbiology) all tenable at the School of Biomedical Sciences, Makerere University. Funding
for tuition will be available for a maximum of one academic year (Masters of Science) and two academic Years (Masters of Medicine). A modest monthly stipend and reasonable research funds will be provided.
1. There are 2-3 slots for 2022.
2. Minimum qualifications: Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree in a health-related field from a recognized university
3. Demonstrated interest in immunology, microbiology or molecular biology
4. Evidence of admission to an MSc or MMED program is not required at this moment; however, eventual funding of successful candidates is dependent on their successful admission onto
the respective program that is purely independent of this particular call for application.
5. Applicants should be ready and willing to undergo oral interviews
