The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility requests research proposals from faculty in the Academic Health Center for new studies in Uganda. The goals of these seed grants are to: 1) Seed new research studies by UMN faculty from the health sciences that have potential to attract future funding from external sources; Create a mechanism to involve students in faculty-led international research studies; Encourage interdisciplinary research across the health sciences; Support new partnerships between UMN faculty and collaborators at institutions in Uganda.
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.
