A Warm Welcome to African Fellows

Posted on by

I took part in the orientation session for the new African Postdoctoral Training Initiative (APTI) on February 28, 2019. The session was held at the Fogarty Stone House on the NIH campus, and afterwards I joined this inaugural group of APTI fellows and event organizers for a group photo. The orientation, which provided an overview of APTI and its vision to help early-career researchers from Africa excel, was hosted by NIH and its partners in this initiative, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the African Academy of Sciences. The fellows hail from six African countries, and they will work over the next few years in 10 NIH labs in Maryland, North Carolina, and Montana. Credit: Marleen Van den Neste.
