Grand Challenges Africa: Drug Discovery


The African Academy of Sciences (AAS), the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV) and the University of Cape Town Drug Discovery and Development Centre (H3D) have partnered to support new drug discovery projects in Africa, focusing on malaria, tuberculosis, and neglected tropical diseases. A secondary objective is to strengthen drug discovery capabilities in Africa and create a project-driven virtual African drug discovery network.

Great ideas come from everywhere.
