Thank you for participating in the first annual MRC Unit The Gambia Festival

22 June 2016

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for attending our Science Festival, highlighting the achievements of our young scientists representing our three themes, Vaccines and Immunity, Disease Control and Elimination and Nutrition.

It was fantastic to see so many of our esteemed collaborators from The Gambia government, non-governmental organisations, community elders and students, with a common goal to explore our research activities through interactive demonstrations and innovative infographics.

As research at MRC Unit The Gambia remains focused on the health priorities of The Gambia and neighbouring countries in the West African sub-region, through excellence in science, we look forward to future collaborations to support health research to save lives and improve health across the world.
