As one component of the three-year learning and mentoring program, GINGER will host six introductory research courses (“on-site trainings”) between January 2018 and May 2020 which will be held in collaboration with partner institutions in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, and Uganda. Each workshop will run for approximately one to two weeks and consist of multiple short courses co-taught by GINGER Teaching Fellows and GINGER faculty.
On-site trainings are geared toward the broader communities at the partner institutions, and will be open to a larger audience, including graduate students, fellows, research assistants, and project managers. The goal of the on-site trainings is to spark interest in the field neuropsychiatric genetics, to offer foundational research courses not yet offered at collaborating institutions, and to create a community of interested individuals for both the partner institutions and GINGER Research Fellows throughout East and South Africa. All curriculum for on-site research workshops are developed in partnership with local institutions.
Currently, the GINGER Program is accepting applications for a training at Moi University, to be conducted from May 18-June 22. Please click here for more information on the training.
