The Central and West African Implementation Science Alliance (CAWISA) is set to implement the University of Maryland Baltimore President’s Global Impact Fund for initiatives in developing cross-campus and international collaboration.
CAWISA will be implementing a project titled, “Developing an Implementation Science (IS) Mentoring Toolkit for Early Investigators in West and Central Africa.”
Dr. Nadia Sam-Agudu and Prof. Alash’le Abimiku, both faculty members of the School of Medicine in the University of Maryland Baltimore, will be leading the project.
According to Dr. Sam Agudu, the project’s goal is to “provide hands-on, productivity-focused mentoring for aspiring independent investigators in Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.”
She expressed her excitement and willingness to collaborate with scholars across countries to make the project successful.
“Professor Abimiku and I are honored to be among the first group of UMB faculty to receive this award,” she said.
