Biotechnology for Africa

ICGEB Cape Town 2007-2011 - the first four years of the ICGEB Cape Town Component, South Africa

In Africa, hunger or malnourishment affect one third of the population; 700,000 children under the age of 5 die every year, every 12 hours 3,000 people die of HIV/AIDS; non communicable diseases are also increasing at an alarming rate. All of these are issues that can be effectively tackled through a science-based approach focusing on research and its biomedical and agricultural applications.

While no single institution can tackle the majority of problems and scientific needs of the African continent, ICGEB Cape Town aims to provide a training platform in topics and techniques that the trained scientist will later implement in disparate fields of research and development.
