Grants available for East African preterm birth research

A United States-funded initiative is inviting East African researchers to apply for research grants worth up to US$100,000 to investigate problems associated with preterm birth in the region.

The Preterm Birth East Africa initiative, a programme run by the University of California-San Francisco, is open to scientists from Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda.

The programme aims to produce fresh knowledge about the management and cause of preterm birth in East Africa, and to inform local interventions. The research focus will include factors influencing preterm births and biomarkers to estimate gestational age or an impending premature birth.
