Over the coming months, teams of student researchers from the University of Minnesota and Makerere University will develop a proposal, create a research plan, gather at their study site in Uganda to conduct research, and write manuscripts for publication as part of their involvement in the Uganda Research Training Collaborative (URTC). This program pilot was launched in December by CGHSR with the goal of developing the next generation of global health researchers.
