Uganda Research Training Collaborative



The Uganda Research Training Collaborative (RTC) is a program for students to gain hands-on experience in global health research under the mentorship of University of Minnesota and Makerere University faculty members. This effort builds on a strong collaboration between the Academic Health Center (AHC) and Makerere University, and aims to cultivate a culture of excellence in global health research. This program is facilitated by CGHSR, building on the strengths and infrastructure already in place through the AHC Hub in Kampala, Uganda. 



The RTC provides an opportunity for inter-institutional teams of students, under the mentorship of UMN and Makerere faculty members, to propose and carry out small-scale research projects.

Student teams who successfully complete preparations for research training are eligible for travel funding and a small amount of research money for expenses and fees. 


Give now to support faculty and students health research. Our goal is to raise $1 million over five years to support faculty and students while building participation, awareness and momentum toward future, sustainable funding.  Your support is appreciated!
