The Chan Soon-Shiong Family Foundation (CSSFF) and the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) have announced a five-year collaboration to initiate a skills development programme that aims to train a cohort of young African candidates to build a skilled workforce to manufacture vaccines on the African continent. This Programme will be achieved through a mixture of virtual, online, in-person lectures and, most importantly, hands-on lab-based training by awarding Studentships, Scholarships and Fellowships in vaccine-related disciplines in the health, life and allied sciences.
