In July 2018, students and mentors gathered to recognize the efforts of the first cohort of student teams and launch the second cohort of the Research Training Collaborative (RTC). The RTC is a research training program for students from the University of Minnesota and participating institutions in Uganda to gain hands-on experience in global health research. Cohort 2 was formulated in early summer 2018 and this gathering was an opportunity to present their research plans to faculty mentors and student colleagues. Throughout 2018 and 2019, Cohort 2 will be advancing research projects in three teams.

A 2016 Global Health Seed Grant catalyzed a collaboration between University of Minnesota and Makerere University researchers to study vaccination barriers in Uganda. In 2018, the collaboration is still strong and growing, having built on the seed grant with a UMN Grand Challenges Exploratory Research Grant and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges Explorations Grant, and continues to tackle issues relevant to adolescent and child health. Advance your global collaborations in our latest round of Global Health Seed Grants. CGHSR is requesting letters of intent by March 15 and proposals are due April 7, 2018.
