Development of Research Capacity in Malawi
In 2007, The University of Liverpool launched a partnership with the College of Medicine in Malawi to support regional research leadership for the future. It hoped to do so by: improving research supervision for trainees and postgraduate students by setting up courses in Malawi and running them in collaboration with the college; supporting the development of joint Liverpool-Malawi higher degrees at Masters and Doctorate level; stimulating the culture of research among its undergraduate and postgraduate students by offering placements in Liverpool; improving administrative and financial management systems for research; making on-site research facilities available; and developing a mentoring system for the development of future research leaders.
As of mid-2009, Liverpool staff were working with colleagues in Malawi (and with other partners) to develop a Consortium application to the Wellcome Trust (UK) with the specific aim of strengthening research capacity. The Universities of Liverpool and Malawi had also agreed to a Joint PhD program. Since submission of its commitment, the University of Liverpool had also been funded by the Wellcome Trust to host a Clinical PhD Program entitled: 'Health Priorities in the Developing World'. Only six such Programs were awarded in the UK by national competition. Worth a total of over $8,300,000, the Program comprises 15 four-year fellowships, most of which will be held in Malawi.
