Infectious Diseases such as malaria, HIV and Tuberculosis contribute the largest proportion of morbidity and mortality in the West African sub-region. This calls for increased and sustained efforts to train the manpower required to confront the menace and to promote research towards the development of new approaches for vaccines, drugs and diagnostics.
The West African Center for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP) at the University of Ghana was formed in response to the World Bank’s African Centers of Excellence (ACE) initiative. The Center will provide Masters, PhD and Post-doctoral level training, and conduct research focused on cell and molecular biology of major diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. WACCBIP seeks to build on existing collaborations between the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology (BCMB), the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), and the University of Ghana Computing Systems (UGCS), and an invaluable relationship with a major international partner in the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB). These relationships were built through organizing the West African Regional Workshop on Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens at the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular, University of Ghana. This was under the ASCB Africa Initiative, which has been successful in training many scientists using its vast network of international Infectious Disease experts.
This Centre aims to serve as the hub to provide a permanent organizational presence required for extending the reach of these workshops to many institutions in the sub-region. Apart from extending the reach of the workshops, the scope of the training provided will also be expanded to include medium and long-term programs.
