Project Description

This partnership between Washington University in St. Louis, University of Rwanda (UR), and African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Kigali, Rwanda, proposes to develop a comprehensive research training program in Data Science. A high prevalence of communicable and non-communicable diseases in Rwanda forecasts a perfect public health storm. The project will recruit masters, doctorate, postdoctoral and junior faculty trainees to establish a sustainable program for training, research, mentoring and career development to position UR and AIMS as national and regional African leaders and a global center for Data Science for Health in Rwanda.
