Call for Applications: The African Academy of Sciences and the South African Medical Research Council tackle antimicrobial resistance in Africa

The African Academy of Sciences: 

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) is a pan African organisation headquartered in Kenya, which aims to drive sustainable development in Africa through science, technology and innovation. It has a tripartite mandate of pursuing excellence by recognising scholars and achievers; providing advisory and think-tank functions for shaping the continent’s strategies and policies; and implementing key science, technology and innovation programmes that impact on developmental challenges through the agenda setting and funding platform, the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA). AESA was created by AAS and the NEPAD Agency. Launched in 2015, the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA) is an Africa-led, Africa-centred, and Africa-specific platform for developing strategies, mobilising resources, implementing science, technology and innovation (STI) programmes in Africa and evaluating the impact of these investments.

South African Medical Research Council:

The scope of the SAMRC’s research includes basic laboratory investigations, clinical research and public health studies. Research at the SAMRC focuses on the top 10 causes of death in South Africa. To assist with delivering on this vital mandate, the organisation is led by the National Department of Health and works with other key stakeholders such as the Department of Science and Technology, South African and international science councils, medical schools, universities, research institutions and international collaborators. Further information: 

Funding will be given to projects that propose innovation in:

  • Data sources: Pilot tests of new sources of data, particularly those that would bring together different research communities for new perspectives on the problem.
  • Analytical methods: Pilot tests of bioinformatics approaches, including those that combine or connect existing databases in novel ways.
  • Biomarkers: Pilot tests of new biomarkers or combinations of biomarkers that could lead to new understanding of the actionable implications of antimicrobial resistance surveillance data.
  • Low-cost technologies and products: Exploratory work in developing new technologies and products, including     
  1. those that specifically target improved infection prevention and control in healthcare settings to reduce reliance on healthcare provider behaviour change, and
  2. technologies to remove antibiotics from effluents.

The call for applications will close on 16th, May 2018. For more details, please click here
