Next generation of biomedical scientists


  • African Institute of Biomedical Science and Technology

Project summary

The project seeks to inspire high school students to identify local health challenges by engaging with their community. They will then develop a scientifically credible and locally relevant solution with the support of researcher mentors. The solution will be showcased at an exhibition for community leaders, local business and relevant authorities. 

The project aims to develop problem-solving mindsets among students, and the ability to apply academic knowledge to tackle real-life challenges. We want to inspire students to consider careers in research and biomedical science and create communities that are proactive in finding solutions to local health challenges. We also want to improve the communication of health information.
