Objectives

An objective of the Kirkhouse Trust is to support capacity building in locations where there has been little practical molecular biology training available at the tertiary level. One approach to this has been for the charity to provide the necessary equipment and consumables to enable institutions in Africa and, to a lesser extent, India, to establish small laboratories which can be used by both scientists and students. Most of these laboratories are linked to research projects which the charity has funded. However, two laboratories have been established primarily for training purposes: the KT mobile lab in the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (pictured left), run by Ms Margaret Acheampong, and a teaching lab at the University of Zimbabwe run by Professor Idah Sithole-Niang.
