Natural Resources Institute supporting CONNECTED training opportunities

The CONNECTED network is hugely grateful to staff from the Natural Resources Institute (NRI), University of Greenwich, who are providing important help to our project’s offering of unique research opportunities to African students.

You can read an article on the NRI website, outlining some of the support provided which helped enable network members take advantage of two significant training opportunities, using this link.

We are most grateful to NRI and in particular to

  • Dr Gonçalo Ramalho E. Silva (pictured with delegates at the March 2019 virus and vector diagnostic course, run by CONNECTED in association with BecA-ILRI Hub), and
  • Prof. Richard Hopkins, a CONNECTED Management Board member, whose work was fundamental in creating an opportunity for two delegates to attend a bioinformatics course in Sweden early in 2019.
