The CTIH will host University of Ghana PhD students enrolled in the DELTAS program, for up to six months during their rotations with co-supervisors, recruited from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Public Health. The program is a coalition of local, regional, and international partners aimed at providing an invaluable access for participants to resources and expertise in human genetics and pathogen biology research.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana (4th from the front row) is pictured with a delegation of the Wellcome Trust and applicants of a proposed collaborative PhD and Postdoctoral Training program to be funded by the Wellcome Trust’s Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training, and Science (DELTAS) Africa Initiative.    


The WACCBIP-Wellcome Trust DELTAS programme is seeking young African scientists to work as postdoctoral fellows in an environment that promotes the development of leadership skills and networking with other scientists in Africa. As a new centre of excellence for biomedical research, WACCBIP will generate tremendous research activities through the various graduate training programmes. The centre and its partners will therefore, provide a well-resourced research environment to promote the research careers of newly graduated PhDs. WACCBIP is co-hosted by the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology (BCMB) and the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), University of Ghana, and has several regional and international partner institutions.
