NIH and Wellcome Trust Launch

Scientists at African medical research institutions are collaborating with a new initiative called Human Heredity and Health in Africa — or H3Africa — to advance African capacity and expertise in genomic science. H3Africa, announced in June 2010, is organized and supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Wellcome Trust, a global charity based in London. Now, H3Africa organizers have launched a new website to serve as a repository for research resources and information about H3Africa.

The website — — is hosted by its sponsor organizations, but will eventually become a freestanding site managed and operated by the collective H3Africa enterprise. Like H3Africa itself, the site is a capacity-developing opportunity for H3Africa participants.
