Our One Health training focuses on developing competence for the application of molecular biology and analytical epidemiology to understand and manage risk associated with infectious diseases through a tiered postgraduate programme.

We aim to develop  world-class research students and fellows, addressing capacity gaps and the convergent need in science and technology that make linking medical and veterinary research efficient and effective in the resource poor settings of sub Saharan  Africa
