[Africa Open Lab Proposal submissions:]
The Africa Open Lab is inviting applications from African scientists at an early stage of their career with an interest in conducting research in infectious diseases.

We strive to enable awardees to develop their research careers through offering funding for a research project and invaluable mentoring while they conduct their innovative research projects.

Africa Open Lab call is for proposals of relevance to the understanding of infectious disease epidemiology, aetiology, prevention and control; proposals addressing significant gaps in knowledge as well as mechanisms to improve access to medicines and vaccines for infectious diseases in Africa.

The research project may consist of population-based or clinical studies, laboratory-based analysis of field or clinical samples; but projects focused solely on studies in vitro or using animal models will {not} be considered.

o   Malaria
o   Tuberculosis
o   Enteric infections
o   Respiratory infections
o   Neglected Tropical Diseases
o   Emerging infectious diseases of particular relevance for Africa
o   Other bacterial infections
