Call for Exhibitors and Sponsorship: 13th Meeting of the H3Africa Consortium


Invitation
Dear Sponsor, Exhibitor, Industrial Partner

The Thirteenth Meeting of the H3Africa Consortium will be held April 7th- 12th, 2019, in the capital of Tunisia, the meeting will take place at the Laico Tunis. The goal of the H3Africa initiative is to facilitate a contemporary research approach to the study of the genomic and environmental determinants of common diseases in Africa, with the purpose of improving the health of African populations. A total of forty-three grants have been awarded at various Institutions across Africa forming the core of the Consortium. These include a pan-African bioinformatics network, biorepositories for sample storage, and research projects applying genomics methods to study communicable and noncommunicable diseases and/or exploring the ethical legal and social implications of genomics research on the African continent.

 

We do realize that many industry partners already engage our member scientists and we would like to further this engagement by inviting industry partners to showcase their services  and products at our meeting in Tunis in an effort to solidify networks and find workable solutions to achieve our goals in a mutually beneficial manner.
