Last week, Institut Pasteur de Dakar was proud to host a high-level training workshop on innovations in medicine, focusing on single-cell genomics. In collaboration with the esteemed Ragon Institute of Mass General, MIT, and Harvard Institute, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and University of Cambridge USA, this initiative promises to push boundaries in medical research.

With a cohort of 40 participants hailing from 6 countries – USA, Senegal, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, and Gambia – including 8 esteemed faculty members and 32 enthusiastic trainees, this workshop embodies global collaboration at its finest.

The course, generously funded and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through the GIISER Program (Global Immunology and Immune Sequencing for Epidemic Response) and Science for Africa Foundation(SFA), aims to equip participants with advanced skills to unravel the complexity of immune responses. By honing their abilities to identify antibodies for diagnostics, vaccines, and therapeutic applications, participants will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of medical interventions.

This single-cell genomics training workshop is one of the many strategic and specialized courses organized by Institut Pasteur de Dakar, underscoring our commitment to advancing healthcare across Africa and beyond.

Together, we’re driving impactful change and significantly improving the health outcomes of populations worldwide.
